Iona gigs

By | Music from the Nations | No Comments

The concert dates in March with Iona in Germany went well, with a surprise at one venue in Karlsruhe, friends who I had lost contact with many years ago turning up.

The concert in Cornwall was also very special, situated in Carnglaze Caverns, St. Neot, once used as a rum store, and my first gig “underground”!! Amazingly, this site has been run for the last 6 years by a Christian family who now own the slate caves and underground lakes and have renovated one large cave complete with staging, sound system and lights. Attracting orchestras, rock bands and folk musicians, this has become a prime concert venue in the middle of Cornwall. I loved spotting the regulars to this venue, laden with coats and blankets, knowing that the temperature drop inside was considerable ….. this was one gig that I was very pleased to be the drummer (I kept very warm).
