Lots of people to thank for the great sold out crowd we had for the Iona Scottish Session Pipes and Fiddles show at Jalopy last night – what a blast. Thanks to everyone who came down. Thanks to the musicians who travelled from Scotland, Cape Breton, Seattle and points closer to home – you all rocked and there were so many highlights. Andrew Forbes playing Tombs,Ben Miller and Anita MacDonald with Troy Macg on piano locking in – just wow – that alone was worth putting on the show for, Katie and Neil kicking it up to a new level of fiddle and piano awesomeness, Troy just being the monster all round player he is and the Iona session sets by Amy BesharaCalum Michael.John Nevin – thanks for spreading the word and for all you do for trad music in NYC. Simon Brooking and the fine single malts of Laphroaig – so many appreciative comments from the crowd – and what a treat – Thanks.Matt Diaz – the photo show was AMAZING. Looked fantastic. Douglas Safranek – thank you for hanging the show and putting up the musicians. Sharon Katzmann lifesaver, super generous of you to step in when we needed an emergency hostess , the magical generous musical people of Jalopy Theatre and School of Music, Feral , Lynette Wiley, Karen, Geoff and sound man Eric and our stalwart supporters from Iona Bar, Robbie, Victor, Miguel and J.  Thanks!

Well St Pat’s was a great old time at Iona.  This coming Monday we’ll be having some  post Pat’s fun with the regular session from 8.30pm.  Since we’ve been going a good three years now, thanks to the great support of the bar and musician community, we thought we’d try our hands at putting on a concert – so we’re pleased to announce on Thursday April 10th at the fabulous Jalopy Theater in Brooklyn, 315 Columbia Street at 8pm we’ll be hosting a concert with top visiting trad music artists.  Fiddlers Katie McNally and Troy MacGillivray top the bill with the Iona regulars Amy Beshara, Max Carmichael, Calum Pasqua and Andrew Forbes, and pipe and fiddle duo Ben Miller and Anita MacDonald supporting. $15  Tickets here

Our own Matt Diaz, photographer and musician, will be opening a photography show  called ‘The Open Session’ the same night at the Jalopy Theater (April 10) of portraits and session family groups taken at the traditional music nights all around NYC.
