About ionaleigh

"Iona Leigh is a modern storyteller of ancient folk tales, it sounds a bit like a princess singing in the time when knights were slaying dragons." It’s Iona Leigh’s voice – gorgeous and ethereal, dazzling in its command and elegance, which envelopes the listener in its luminous glow. Iona has an incredible talent for taking traditional Scottish Folk, Irish Folk, English Folk and American Folk material and fusing it with more contemporary pop influences to create something that is refreshing and unique. Iona's music could be best described as an unusual and exciting mixture of Seth Lakeman's addictive rhythms, Sheila Chandra stunning vocals and The Waifs textured harmonies.


Dear Friends,

Greetings from sunny Findhorn where the summer nights are long and our landscape dances in every wonderful shade of green at this time of year.

My three albums continue to sell well online and have recently been played on radio stations all over the globe from Scotland’s own BBC Alba to the smooth Californian radio waves.

I was recently approached by a fabulous female music publisher in LA, USA who would like to licence my music catalogue for both TV and film soundtracks – so watch this space, or should I say keep your ears peeled!

As well as teaching harp (Clarsach) and singing lessons locally, I am also honoured to now be teaching at the wonderful Drumduan School in Forres (Waldorf/Steiner inspired), where I attended as a pupil myself in the 90’s.

Well, sending you all big summer blessings – with a recommendation for you to go to my music page & enjoy  “Peaches in the Summertime”!

Love, Iona
