h perhaps technically a singer-songwriter, Ian Fitzgerald prefers the term folk singer. While "singer-songwriter" carries with it the negative connotations brought on by too many over-emotive, heart-on-their-sleeve performers, "folk singer" points more accurately to the tradition in which Ian's music is rooted. Since April of 2012, Ian's live performances have been enhanced by the addition of harmony vocalist Courtney Gallagher. In addition to developing harmony parts for a slew of Ian's newest works, Courtney has added her touch to a number of Ian's older songs.
