Iona Lane is a folk singer and musician, whose well-crafted songs are delivered with immense passion, and an understanding beyond her years for the stories she tells. Having found herself fascinated by discovering untold folk stories from rural parts of the UK, where natural environment, landscape, sustainability and community are integral to people’s way of life, Iona has honed her songwriting to create something really special.
She performs frequently at festivals and folk clubs, recently including Wimborne Minster Festival and Beardy Folk Festival, and along the way she has played alongside many well-known names, including Blair Dunlop, Edgelarks, and The Willows. She is currently studying for a BA Hons (Music) Folk degree, with a scholarship, at Leeds College of Music under the tuition of Jim Moray, Nancy Kerr and Bryony Griffith. Performing a mix of traditional and original folk songs, Iona has been praised throughout the scene for her delicate yet powerful vocals, which have captivated audiences up and down the country.
