Scottish Balladeer in concert, Odin Lonning, master carver, teaches course

Scottish Balladeer

Vocalist Iona Fyfe, named in 2021 as the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, will bring the ballads of Scotland to a concert at 7:30 pm Friday, Sept. 30, at Vashon Center for the Arts (VCA).

Fyfe has been described as “a major young voice in the continuous skein of the ballad tradition” by Irish Music Magazine and has been praised by UK RnR Magazine for her grasp of jazz, Americana and much more.

She comes to Vashon having just finished a series of shows in Edinburgh — bringing Islanders the opportunity to be transported to Fyfe’s Aberdeenshire of Northeast Scotland without ever leaving the Shores of Vashon island.
