The Iona Scottish Session began as an informal gathering for Scottish folk musicians in Brooklyn, NY in 2012. Soon becoming a gathering place for some of the finest celtic talent in the world, an album was funded and produced in 2015. With Andrew Forbes on borderpipes and whistle, Amy Beshara, Calum Pasqua, Karen Brown, and Hannah Marie on fiddles, Max Carmichael on banjo and guitar, Matt Diaz on guitar, Bram Pomplas on bodhran and Leah Rankin on cello, this album is a rich, textured display of musical depth that regularly played at the Iona pub in Brooklyn. Produced by Andrew Forbes and Karen Brown.
The Iona Session meets every Monday at Iona, 180 Grand Street, Brooklyn, NY.
