54 – Hannah Fisher

In this episode I talk with Hannah Fisher of Kintra in the Ross of Mull. 

Originally from Dunkeld, Hannah is a musician who has toured the world with bands including Idlewild and King Creosote, whilst also having a fantastic solo career as one of the most interesting fiddle players and composers around at this moment in time. 
I’m delighted to say that Hannah has let us have two pieces of music to play in this episode, the first piece you’ll hear half way through our chat and the second will play us out at the end.

Our conversation takes us back through her childhood, the roots of her musical adventures, her career adventures to date and how Mull and Kintra in particular has become home.

Here’s a gallery of paintings by Hannah’s Great Grandfather Peter Thomson Bissett, who lived from 1923-1961.

Thanks for listening!
