Scots Musician of the Year is Coming to the Bitterroot Valley
Western Montana is very lucky to have world class musicians come through our area on the regular, rock bands, punk bands, country artists and Celtic bands. Celtic bands? For the past two decades I have been very lucky to be a part of a group of musicians that have had the opportunity to open for some amazing Celtic bands and musicians here in Montana. Being a part of the Celtic Dragon Pipe band, a local bagpipe band, that focusses on tradition Celtic music, we have had a chance to open for the Red Hot Chili Pipers, as well as Gaelic Storm and others. So when we get word that an amazing musician is coming to Western Montana to put on a performance that you should see I will let you know. The Bitterroot Celtic Society in partnership with the Bitterroot Performing arts Council is proud to welcome to Montana Iona Fyfe.
She is going to be performing at Mary Stuart Rogers Performing Arts Center at the Victor School on Wednesday September 28th. Tickets are on sale now for $20 at The Bitterroot Performing Arts or $25 at the door the day of the show. According to her biography, "Iona Fyfe has become one of Scotland's finest singers rooted deeply in the singing traditions of the North East of Scotland. In 2021 she became the first winner of the coveted title of Musician of the Year at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards." Iona is a fierce supporter of the Scots language and will be performing both traditional and pop songs in the Scots language. The past few years the Bitterroot Celtic Society has grown bigger with the reputation they are getting around the world with brining in top notch musicians and also putting on the annual Bitterroot Highland Games and Gathering. I am always proud of a community that supports the arts and artists from all over the globe. Let's keep that tradition alive and as always support your local pipe band!
