Dave Bainbridge
(Piano, keyboard, electric & acoustic guitars, bouzouki)
Best known for his work with pioneering Celtic folk/rock/ambient band IONA and more recently Celestial Fire, Strawbs and Lifesigns, Dave’s multi-faceted career has led him into many musical genres and work with numerous artists including; Jack Bruce, Lifesigns, Troy Donockley (Nightwish), Buddy Guy, Gloria Gaynor, Mae McKenna, Moya Brennan, ‘Snake’ Davis, Paul Jones, Phil Keaggy, Robert Fripp, Nick Beggs, Damian Wilson and many others.
Dave gained several performance awards during his time at Leeds College of Music (including BBC Radio 2 Best Jazz Soloist Award). As well as recording 13 albums with IONA, he has also
released 3 solo albums, a Celestial Fire Live DVD/2CD and several collaborations with both Troy Donockley and David Fitzgerald.
“Bainbridge has always been known as a fantastic guitar player, with his trademark soaring and searing leads. However, he is an equally accomplished keyboard player….On Celestial Fire, he really shows off his ivory chops….The instrumental parts are some of the coolest I've heard in years….It is far and away my favorite release of 2014 and gets my highest recommendation.”
David Taylor - “Dave Bainbridge is a a genius of immeasurable proportions…If you are unfamiliar with him it’s time to make amends. Trust me.” Nick Beggs (Steve Wilson, Steve Hackett etc)
‘Bainbridge’s guitar playing is superb; his electric solos conjure Eric Johnson and Allan Holdsworth.….Looking deeper, the music is genuinely touching, possessing a spiritual quality that speaks to the soul and inspires various states of positivity, from peaceful tranquility to breathless exhilaration.’ www.progressiveworld.net

Sally Minnear
(Vocals, vocal loops, acoustic guitar, drums, percussion, tin whistle, violin)
Daughter of multi instrumentalist Kerry Minnear of the hugely respected and influential ’70’s progressive band Gentle Giant, Sally has been steeped in music throughout her life, with her brother and sister also being successful musicians.
Sally had a minor hit with the song “For You” aged just 18, before forming the acoustic duo ‘Creatures of Habit’ as a vehicle for her own songs. After completing a music degree, during which time she played fiddle and sang in a popular traditional Irish band, Sally secured the featured vocalist role in Michael Flatley’s hugely successful dance spectacular ‘Lord of the Dance’. Sally toured with the production for several years, before leaving to start a family.
She has contributed vocals recently for several artists, including Misty’s Big Adventure, Dave Brons, John Holden & Pablo Ortiz.
Sally is also lead vocalist, multi instrumentalist in Dave’s band Celestial Fire.
“Sally Minnear’s angelic vocals….I could listen to her all day and never lose interest” www.seaoftranquility.org
”Sally's voice brings an ethereal quality to the Iona songs"

Irish Celtic Rock
Das Musik mit irisch/keltischen Wurzeln sehr populär ist, zeigen die Erfolge von ENYA, RUNRIG, CLANNAD, MOYA BRENNAN, oder LOREENA McKENNITT. Die irisch/englische Band IONA zählt mit zu den Besten dieses Genres. Chris MacIntosh schreibt: "IONA hat mit ihrem Mix aus Progressive Rock, Symphonic Rock und traditioneller Keltischer Folk Music einen einzigartigen Stil geschaffen. Das hat sie zu einer der eigenständigsten Gruppen weltweit gemacht."

IONA tourt mit dem Studioalbum "Another Realm", das international bereits überschwängliche Kritiken erhalten hat. Die Band baut auch weiterhin traditionelle Tunes, Jigs und Reels in ihre langen Konzerte ein. Plötzlich verwandelt sich die malerische Musik in einen Sturm, der das Publikum aus den Sesseln reisst und fröhlich mittanzen lässt.

Die Celtic Rockband IONA rund um den Tastenkünstler, Multiinstrumentalisten und Soundtüftler Dave Bainbridge lässt das Publikum eintauchen in sphärische Klangwelten. IONAs Musik ist inspiriert von der gleichnamigen schottischen Insel, von der aus irische Mönche im 8. Jahrhundert das Christentum nach Europa brachten. Die Bühne in stimmungsvolles Licht getaucht, entrücken mystische Weisen das Publikum in die stille Schönheit dieser Landschaft. Mitten hinein platzt virtuose Lebensfreude, gespielt von Martin Nolan auf traditionellen Instrumenten wie Uilleann Pipes oder Low & Tin Whistles. Und über allem streicht die kristallklare Stimme der Sängerin Joanne Hogg wie der Wind über Schottlands Hügel und verliert sich in die Herzen der Zuhörer.
