Hallival’ is the long awaited debut album from Leeds-based folk singer, songwriter and storyteller Iona Lane. Driven by awe and wonder, hope and joy, it is a masterful debut. Across this album Iona delivers her poetic songs with the utmost care and attention. Subtle musical touches and contemplative warm vocals combine to make this one of the most rewarding albums of the year - reaching number 36 in the Official Folk Album Charts and airplay across the UK including on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio Wales.
Iona's music draws from landscapes and the natural world, finding stories in rural locations of mythology, folklore and science and giving them life in the genre of contemporary folk.
"Iona feels like a kindred spirit with her gorgeous evocations of landscape and geeky scientific references."
- Karine Polwart
"A real talent!"
- Mark Radcliffe BBCR2 Folk Show
"Iona's lyrics and musical arrangements crackle with wide-eyed curiosity.”
- Jude Rogers, The Guardian
Supports from Chris Brain and Niamh Finan
Doors at 7:30pm
