Due to the city’s roads being closed tonight and the subway system limited because of the storm, we are re-scheduling the Iona Burns Night for next Monday February 2nd.
Get your New Year Celebrations started tonight Monday 29th at the pre-Hogmanay party at Iona, 180 Grand St, Brooklyn NY – with the sounds of top notch pipes and fiddle duo Ben Miller & Anita MacDonald. After attending the piping program at the Royal Scottish Conservatoire, Ben’s now finishing his PhD at the School of Scottish Studies in Edinburgh and Anita’s an amazing step dancer and fiddler from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia who’s performed all around the NE and at the Celtic Colours International Festival . It’s going to be great night with two amazing tradition bearers.
Thanks to all our supporters and especially to the bar – Robbie, Victor, J and Miguel – we made it – Kickstarter came in during the session last Monday. Join us this coming Monday for the last session before we break for the summer led by the wondrously talented Amy Beshara accompanied by Max Carmichael on guitar. We’re planning to make the album over summer and debut it when the session returns to Iona after Labor Day! Still time to contribute! Links below :

Tonight Monday May 12! Sweet spring blossoms fill the air in the Iona garden-and inside there’s thai curry pies, bagpipes, beer and tunes! What could be better than a co-hosting conflagration of red hot Scottish/Cape Breton goodness with Amy Beshara fiddle, Max Carmichael guitar and Andrew Forbes pipes. Smokin’!
