Just a few iPhone pics from last nights gig in Braunschweig Germany. We last played there in 1996! I met a lovely girl who was at that gig ..... In her mothers womb! Her name is Iona. It was definitely a nostalgic night for some of the audience.

Frank writes: Getting ready to fly to Germany tomorrow for a 5-gig tour with IONA. Really looking forward to meeting people, playing the beautiful music that inspired & blessed so many people around the globe, and being with my band mates again. I have been privileged of being in Iona for more than 15 years now and although we are struggling to keep the band alive it is always a joy to go out and play. This music and everyone involved is very close to our hearts. If Iona's music has blessed you in some way, please share it with us. It is important for us to know, to gain a fresh vision for the future of the band and our individual lives. We need wisdom for the road ahead. And opportunities to play, and the means to do it.
Also, please pray for this week. 5 gigs in a row is a lot, especially when the travel times are 2,5-6 hours every day. Especially for Johan van Loo, our amazing engineer who travels in his own van and is always the first to arrive and last to leave. Thanks folks!
