“Where You’re Meant to Be” is a concept album, inspired by the source and revivalist singers of Aberdeenshire. Featuring archive clips of singers such as Stanley Robertson and Lizzie Higgins, Iona aims to showcase revivalism in folksong by creating a programme of modern interpretations of old ballads and self-penned songs in a traditional style. Whilst drawing on the work of Scottish songwriters such as Michael Marra and Aidan Moffat (Arab Strap), Iona aims to showcase the universalism of folksong in an inter-genre manner. In 2018, Iona will be touring her album “Where You’re Meant to Be” throughout the UK in March and will perform in Fergus, Ontario in April. Iona’s album launch will see her joined by an extended line-up of Charlie Grey, Tim Edey, Luc McNally (Dosca), Ross Miller, Simon Gall (Salsa Celtica) and Charlie Stewart (BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2017).
