Fiona was specially invited to perform live at the launch of Women’s Work in the Bottom Line Club (N.Y.).

Plans for the future include working on songs for a new solo album, as well as further live performances, both solo and with a band. Forthcoming releases include Celtic Woman 2, due to feature Altan, Karen Matlieson and more.

“The fight between light and dark - musically and thematically - is a good metaphor for Joyce’s music”
