Fiona Driver - The Orkney Fiddler (album)

Fiona's first solo album, with Billy Peace on piano and Stewart Shearer on guitar.

A selection of Scottish and Irish traditional tunes, with a few of Fiona's own compositions, played in a fresh and lively traditional style.

Recorded just three years after Fiona started playing, this album remains popular and well loved, and features favourites such as “George Christie of Fochabers,” “Mitton's Breakdown,” and “Margaret's Waltz”.
