It’s not long until we welcome the wonderful Leeds based singer, songwriter & storyteller Iona Lane to Bishops’ House, Sheffield on Thursday 29th June.
Iona has been out supporting the incredible Karine Polwart on tour for the last 5 days and we’ve seen some beautiful collaborations over on socials so do check her out and book a ticket for her solo show. As well as a brilliant artist, Iona also helps us out here at Hudson Records behind the scenes and we’d love to give her a warm Sheffield welcome.
Iona released her debut album ‘Hallival’ in March 2022 to critical acclaim, reaching number 36 in the Folk Album Charts and airplay across the country including the folk shows on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio Wales. Iona's music draws inspiration from landscapes and the natural world, finding stories in rural locations of mythology, folklore and science and giving them new life in folk music.
"A real talent!" - Mark Radcliffe BBCR2 Folk Show
"Iona's lyrics and musical arrangements crackle with wide-eyed curiosity.” - Jude Rogers, The Guardian
"Iona feels like a kindred spirit with her gorgeous evocations of landscape and geeky scientific references." - Karine Polwart
NB There is no bar at this event, BYOB welcome.
