"It's always a joy to see Iona Lane who is a real rising star, constantly looking to innovate and progress and she found a lot of new fans with beautiful songs." Tony Birch, FATEA
"Iona Lane treats us to a short set of Joni-flecked indie folk. The five tracks were lovely, simple and acoustic but the highlight was yet another song that transported the Frenchay faithful to a different place. Her version of the traditional The Loch Tay Boat Song stopped time. Scots to its very bones and seriously beautiful. An utter treat." - Gavin McNamara, Downend Folk Club
