FOOD FESTIVAL 2009 - David Broadfoot, MBE - Cawdor Castle Administrator
"Iona played at Cawdor Castle as part of our Living Food Festival in September 2009. The biggest food festival of its kind in the Highlands it now has a permanent niche in the North’s events calendar and is attended by upwards of 4000 people. The standard of music year on year has grown alongside the festival itself and Iona contributed much to the huge success of last year’s event. A simply wonderful musician, whose talents as a harpist would grace any stage, she compliments her playing with the most enchanting voice. The resulting combination is mesmeric and a sheer joy to listen to. We will undoubtedly be asking her back this year!"
EDUCATION CONFERENCE 2010 - Margo van Greta - Findhorn Foundation Conference Organiser

This really helps to set the tone, and everyone knew they had well and truly arrived in Scotland after hearing your beautiful celtic singing and Clarsach playing."
