Iona - Iona
This is my description text 1. It can support html.

Iona was formed during the late eighties and released their self-titled debut album in 1990. The band covers a number of styles including Celtic, progressive rock, and even jazz and Christian elements.

All the band's albums have received critical acclaim, as have the band's live performances over the years. The mainstays of the band are Dave Bainbridge, Joanne Hogg and David Fitzgerald, and former Kajagoogoo bassist Nick Beggs was a one-time member although there have also been some high profile guests perform with the band on their albums over the years, including King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp. The band are these days also joined by respected multi-instrumentalist Troy Donockley.

Inspiration is often an elusive quality that, once it ignites the imagination, can bring forth music and words that can deeply touch the soul. Journey with the original members of the band Iona as they visit the place that so inspired their formation - the Scottish Isle of Iona. Filmed in 1990 and now available for the first time on DVD, this unique documentary shows the band in its very earliest days, soon after the release of their first self-titled album, in conversation and rehearsing ideas for their follow up album The Book of Kells.

Combining atmospheric landscape footage from the islands of Mull and Iona, and rare concert footage of one of the band's first ever concerts, this is a unique visual document for all those whose lives have been or have yet to be touched by the music of Iona.

Music on this DVD taken from Iona's debut album Iona - originally released in 1990, now once again available, featuring 8 tracks reworked and remixed and the whole album stunningly remastered.
