Hannah Fisher


"Hannah Fisher is a name you may not have heard before but will doubtless hear a lot more of!"

Hannah Fisher from Dunkeld began learning classical violin at a young age. She was first introduced to traditional music aged eleven when she began tuition with Pete Clark and attended weekly sessions at the local pub the Taybank. Having grown up surrounded by the music of Niel Gow, one of Scotland's most influential traditional fiddle players and composers, she has also been inspired by the playing of local piper, the late Gordon Duncan. In more recent years, her range of influences broadened to Ireland and America with the likes of Cathal Hayden and Liz Carroll.

Hannah has already made a career for herself performing under her own name and with the Hannah Fisher Band. She performs as a duo with Sorren Maclean and has worked with many well known acts such as Dougie MacLean, Ross Ainslie and most recently Roddy Woomble … touring extensively with Idlewild.

Hannah, a finalist in the 2013 Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year contest was described while performing  during the Celtic Connections Festival with Sorren Maclean as ”a beguiling, subtly pop-inflected mix of songs and tunes, both covers and originals".
