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.
Uniquely combining rock / folk / progressive / ethnic and ambient elements with the crystalline voice of Joanne Hogg as their focus, IONA create 'a blaze of colors and textures...all the sounds fusing into a single, yearning, heartfelt beautiful cry.'(For more band info, downloads, videos, etc, please see www.iona.uk.com)
If you have never heard IONA, or were unaware that they are still active, then now would be a great time to make your acquaintance with a truly unique band. For more info, please see our website, www.lionheartministries.org, or call 865-984-0302.
