Iona founders Turn Back The Clock For Charity
Latest News - Concert News
Tuesday, 10 October 2006

The two IONA co-founders will be playing together once again in two special charity concerts at Thurston Community College, Thurston, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, on Saturday 14th October 2006. All profits from the concerts will go to the Christian charity 'Aid To The Balkans', sponsors of impoverished families in Albania plus a day centre feeding 30 children & 60 adults.

What makes this extra special is that this is the venue of the very first IONA concert (in June 1989)! At that time, IONA consisted just of the two David's - this was a month prior to Joanne joining the band. Also, the concert is being promoted by Paul Heffer, who took the risk & promoted that very first IONA gig & hosted many IONA rehearsals & writing sessions in his living room!
As the concerts are being organised at quite short notice we would value your support for this worthy cause. The two Dave's set is likely to include many classic early IONA tracks, along with material from their solo albums as well as from the project 'The Eye Of The Eagle' (which the two David's recorded together in 1998). They will be joined by Andrew Fitzgerald, who will be playing additional keyboards. Special guest support artist is singer Charity Quin.

CONCERTS: 3pm & 7.30pm
