Celebration of Celtic & Gaelic Music featuring Iona
The Blue Ridge Music Center and The Chestnut Creek School of the Arts are happy to present an evening of traditional Irish/Celtic Music featuring Iona.
The Concert will take place on Thursday, March 15 at 7 pm at The Chestnut Creek School of the Arts in downtown Galax, VA (100 N. Main Street).
IONA's music is a unique, acoustic weave of the traditional music of Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany (France), the Isle of Man, Asturies and Galicia (Spain), as well as their transplants in America.
Blending songs, dance tunes, and aires into a rich and stunning tapestry, their style is outstanding in an arena where these traditions are seldom intertwined.
Conceived in 1986, IONA was founded by lead singer, bouzouki, guitar and bodhrán player Barbara Ryan and wind player Bernard Argent. Along with fiddler Jim Queen (banjo and vocals as well) and bass guitar player Chuck Lawhorn, IONA has become the leading Celtic group in the Mid-Atlantic region.
