Linda Fabiani MSP joins Ross Macfadyen on Thank Folk It’s Friday from 8pm on Friday 17th June.
In May 1999 Linda Fabiani was first elected to the Scottish Parliament and she had been an MSP for Central Scotland until May year, when she won the East Kilbride and Strathaven Constituency.
Before becoming an MSP, Linda had a career in Housing, becoming Development Manager at Bute Housing Association and then Director of East Kilbride Housing Association.
In 2007 the Italian Government awarded Linda the Cavaliere dell’Ordine della Stella della Solidarieta’ Italia (Knight of the Order of the Star of Italian Solidarity) for working to promote Scots/Italian links.
Linda has long been a ‘fan’ of Scottish music, and indeed was quoted during her Scottish Parliament election campaign as saying: “What I like to do to relax is to listen to some of the great music produced in Scotland, and occasionally to dip into my Italian roots!”
Linda will be sharing some of her favourite tunes with Ross on Friday night’s Thank Folk It’s Friday!
