Biography

Hailing from the microscopic, isolated Shetland island of Fair Isle, Inge Thomson grew up in an enormous world of music. Her family are prominent exponents of folk and traditional music and she became involved with a piano keyed accordion at an early age, which eventually led on to even less socially acceptable instruments.

Inge cut her gigging teeth with folk-pop quintet Drop The Box who toured steadily through the 1990s. More recently she toured and recorded with contempo/trad band Harem Scarem winning critical acclaim for her songwriting and vocal prowess. A recent collaboration with Will Bonnie Prince Billy” Oldham cumulated in an album which received 5 stars in both ‘Mojo’ and ‘Uncut’ magazines. Currently Inge brings her innovative vocal harmonies and multi-instrumental textures to the Karine Polwart Trio.
