The acclaimed Celtic folk rock band bring their thrilling, progressive sound to Band on the Wall.

Formed in 1989, Iona take their name from the small island off the west coast of Scotland. From the beginning, their aim has been to write spiritual, atmospheric, yet uplifting music that would stir the emotions, weaving complex patterns that echo the intricate knot work of the great Celtic artists. Often inspired by the great figures of the Celtic Golden Age such as Columba, Aidan, Brendan and Patrick, Iona’s music is as timeless as the message that reaches out to us across the centuries.

Using the crystalline voice of Joanne Hogg as their focus, Iona combine rock, folk, progressive, world and ambient elements into their music to create a spiritual music for the 21st century.

“an exhilarating contemporary folk act, able to press traditional instruments convincingly into service alongside their electric counterparts… rarely has the new age Celtic thing been given so many welcome twists, or played with such conviction.” Q Magazine
