Fiona originally hails from County Clare, Ireland. Her deep love of traditional Irish music resulted in her first album, Deirin De, which blended traditional lyrics with innovative arrangements . It received favorable reviews and Fiona regularly performs this style
"Deirin De whispers of a rare and welcome childlike innocence and naivete. Subtle guitar lines from MacDara Toibin root this collection very much in it's place and time" Siobhan Long, The Ticket, The Irish Times
"A fascinating treatment of very traditional songs in the Irish language. Tyndall has essentially kept the lyrics and style of singing in tact with a beautiful voice and her own interpretation, but the packaging and accompaniment she has chosen is unexpected. It is rich and truly jazz. Such collections often experiment, Deirin De succeeds" Brian O Donovan, A Celtic Sojourn, National Public Radio Boston (WGBH)
When Fiona and her young family moved to Boston, she embarked on a new venture of jazz with some talented top class musicians and produced Moonglow.
Her musical interests have further expanded since living in the Princeton NJ area. Fiona sang big band with The Funkin' Soulnuts, has performed at varied events as lead singer of Rock group, Uncle Albert, and she demonstrates her versatility in her treatment of Burt Bacharach classics
Fiona performs regularly at Cafe Improv in Princeton, and was voted Best of Cafe Improv 2017. Fiona also performs at the Folk project in Morristown and at Einstein Alleys musicians Collaborative
"Masterful Performance - I've known Fiona Tyndall as a talented performer of traditional Scots-Irish ballads. At the most recent Cafe Improv show, however, she surprised me. She and her combo presented contemporary music of Burt Bacharach and other heavyweight songwriters. Her offerings were just as harmonically beautiful as her sweet folk music. I as swept back in time by 'What Do You Get When You Fall in Love' and other sixties pop hits. Ms Tyndall is a consummate performer (whatever era she chooses); her music will grace anybody's library" John Irving Founder Cafe Improv
