Dunsden Village Hall, April 2018
"Rounding off a great week of music was a trip to Reading to see Kate Howden and Iona Lane at Eye and Dunsden Village Hall
"The music was lovely. Iona couldn't play guitar because of tendonitis, but that doesn't stop real musicians from performing. Kate and Iona came up with a set combining both their talents and it created something really special. Kate's songs are based around people, landscape and nature which so suited the location whilst Iona's voice was at its very best singing both traditional and modern folk songs as well as gorgeous harmonie for Kate. Thank you both!" - Tony Birch
Combe Raleigh Village Hall, February 2018
lovely little stories to accompany Kate's self-composed songs and Iona Lane was a delightful young songwriter and musician. A thoroughly good evening
West Dean Village Hall, Wiltshire
Everything went very smoothly with lots of information being provided plus tickets and posters in good time for the show and recommendations for how to make it go well. Even if you've no experience of promoting something like this I'd have no hesitation recommending them for a great night at your own village hall.
“A celebration of place, where people gather to meet, chat, laugh, socialise, enjoy listening to live music, join in and sing along.”
