years solidly under their belts, this band of nonconformist pan-Celtic
musicians insist on combining the tunes and songs of all the Celtic
cultures: yes -- Asturies, Cape Breton, Appalachia, Mann – all of them!
And they do it with such energy and humor, it’s easy to get up and
dance and sing along and party with them as they perform.
Tresidder Ryan (lead vocals, stringy things, percussion), Bernard
Argent (flute, whistles, percussion), Chuck Lawhorn
(bass guitars, vocals) and Scottish fiddler champ Andrew Dodds
recently celebrated IONA's 20th anniversary by releasing their WAMMIE
award winning double album, A Celebration of 20. World
travelers and well known Washington D.C. Celtic event producers, IONA
brings the music and dance of Celts worldwide to IMT with great
pleasure! According to Steve Winick of Dirty Linen Magazine,
IONA plays ...”the best Celtic music America has to offer”.
