Fiona was born in Cardiff in 1962 and she began having piano lessons at the age of four. At fourteen, she was awarded a scholarship to study piano and music theory at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and within two years, she was a regular performer on Welsh language television and radio, singing and playing her own material.

Having gained her LTCL performer’s diploma at the age of seventeen and upon completion of her A levels, Fiona was offered a place on the music graduate course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where she studied piano, trumpet, orchestration, orchestral and choral conducting and music history. After graduating, she spent many years working as a singer, pianist, songwriter and bandleader and in the late 1990s her function band ”Route 66” was the preferred band for weddings and parties at Highclere Castle (TV’s Downton Abbey).

“I am sure Fiona’s new Lady Radnor Suite will receive the same recognition as Hubert Parry’s original and I am flattered that it is dedicated to me and my family”
