Uniquely combining rock / folk / progressive / ethnic and ambient elements with the crystalline voice of Joanne Hogg as their focus, Iona create ‘a blaze of colours and textures…all the sounds fusing into a single, yearning, heartfelt beautiful cry.’

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.

“… 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
