Fiona Mackenzie, from the Isle of Lewis, began singing at an early age – at home with her family and in her local Gaelic choirs. After leaving the island to study in Glasgow, she joined the Edinburgh-based Celtic band, Seelyhoo, with whom she recorded two albums. She then went on to join, and record with, the internationally acclaimed band, Anam, whilst continuing to sing in the trio Mackenzie, with two of her sisters, Eilidh and Gillian. Mackenzie have released two albums and are still doing various recording and performance projects.
