Iona bring their mystical prog-Celtic music to The Met

Masterfully blending prog rock and Celtic music, Iona return to Bury on Thursday 3 April at 8pm.


Formed in 1989, Iona take their name from the small island off the west coast of Scotland. Their music combines rock, folk, progressive, ethnic and ambient elements with the crystalline voice of Joanne Hogg to create spiritual, atmospheric yet uplifting songs that stir the emotions.


It must be said Miss Hogg always did have a near mystical voice…. they know how to produce soundscapes, big, vast spaces which fill with melody and passion.” – fRoots


The band have built up a formidable reputation as a great live act, with incredible musicianship and disarmingly humourous banter. They have released nine albums so far (six studio recordings and three live) and two DVDs.


Tickets for their performance at The Met are £17.50. For more information or to book please phone 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz.
