Holding Our Own

This is the fourth IONA recording and the first on CD. Released in 1994, it features the blending of Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Cornish and Breton music which has become IONA's hallmark.
Barbara Ryan (vocals, guitar, Bodhran),
Bernard Argent (flute, whistles, doumbek),
and Diana McFadden (mandolin, cittern, cello)
with guest appearances of piper Bob Mitchell (who joined the band three years later), fiddler Elke Baker nd Micah Solomom on Keyboards.
"Dedicated to preserving and reinterpreting traditional music of the Celts, Iona's Barbara Ryan, Bernard Argent and Diana McFadden collectively serve as a stepping stone between the past and the present....a winning combination of verve and soulfulness" - Mike Joyce, The Washington Post
