Fiona Ross & Shane O’Mara are delighted to announce the release of their debut album as a duo: Sunwise Turn. This album of traditional Scots song features many of the songs they have been performing together at major festivals across Australia, along with other songs from Fiona’s established repertoire. The album is voice and acoustic guitar – replicating their live performance.  Fiona’s is an extraordinary voice, evocative & she so beautifully interprets these wonderful traditional songs, whilst Shane’s acoustic guitar virtuosity is a perfect accompaniment …..his playing is just so good and sympatico as he weaves his magic around Fiona’s sublime vocals…
