One of the UK's foremost traditional singer, Ray learned many of her songs and much of her style from such famous exponents of the Scottish tradition as Jeannie Robertson, The Stewarts of Blair and Lizzie Higgins. She brought to her singing a directness that drew the audience right into the song as the story unfolded. It was in 1962 that her first record with her brother Archie Fisher, Far Over The Forth (as Ray & Archie Fisher), was released. The album was notable for the ballads The Twa Corbies and Kilbogie.

It wasn't until 1973 that she released her first solo album, The Bonny Birdy, accompanied by leading folk figures such as Martin Carthy, Ashley Hutchings and Alistair Anderson. It featured two of her defining tracks, The Pride Of Glencoe and The Silkie Of Sul Skerry. Subsequent recordings include Willie's Lady (1982) and Traditional Songs Of Scotland (1991).
