About Fiona

 Thanks for visiting my site 

I hope you enjoy browsing it and sample my music 

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

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. 

in late 2021, Fiona released her latest album, New Frontiers, a collection of songs from Jimmy MacCarthy with novel and creative vocal and instrumental treatment.

She has also released Celtic and Christmas singles  in both English and Irish language 

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.
