‘Orkney at Dawn’ – Birdsong, Wind & Waves

By Bernie Bell

Readers of my pieces in TON, will have noticed that I mention Fiona-Next-Door.  Well, she won’t be Fiona-Next-Door for long, as she and husband Trevor are moving South. As a farewell to Orkney, she’s recently been working on a cd – to add to her others! – of birdsong, wind and water. This cd is about be released – nicely in time for Christmas!

For more info, check out her ‘Orkney at Dawn’ website, which also links to Fiona’s other cd’s, her tune books, and photo-cards.

If you’d like to read the stories of how Fiona ‘caught’ the sounds, you could check out her blog about it, which has some great pics, too……….
