Iona – As It Shall Be

╰⊰¸¸.•¨*

Iona of my heart

Iona of my love

Instead of voices

Shall be the lowing

Of cattle But ‘ere the world

Come to an end

Iona shall be, Iona shall be

As it was

The Prophecy of St Columba about Iona

When Iona was Christian Orthodox…

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 bands albums have received critical acclaim, as have the bands 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 which, once it ignites the imagination, can bring forth music and words which can deeply touch the soul. Journey with the original members of the band Iona as they visit the place which so inspired the band’s 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 bands first ever concerts, this is a unique visual document for all those who’s 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.
