Dave here. Anyone in the Lincoln (UK!) area, I'm doing a solo concert tomorrow Friday 11th July at 7.30pm (doors at 7pm) at The Showroom, Triton Road, Lincoln, LN6 7QY.

I'll be playing a number of Iona tracks during the evening and singing two of them will be special guest Hannah Holland.

The concert is hosted by Life Church in Lincoln and it's FREE to get in! Refreshments will be for sale during the evening and a gift offering will be taken. Any profit after expenses will be going to my daughter Evie and her friend Sarah, who are raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support and Iris Global by having their hair shaved off on 22nd July! Their hair will be donated to The Little Princess Trust who make wigs out of real hair for children who suffer from cancer and alopecia. Do get along if you can - should be a great night - and also support my daughter, whom I'm very proud of. You can also donate to Evie at

The concert is also a tribute to Mick Brien, a fan of Iona's music who sadly died of cancer a week or so ago.

Hi Everyone,
Dave here. I just wanted to let you know that my brave and courageous daughter Evie (age 13!!) is having her hair shaved off for charity, with a friend from school, on July 22nd. The money is going to be split between Iris Global (Heidi Baker), who care for children in Mozambique and Macmillan Cancer Support. The girls are giving their hair to the Little Princess Trust who make wigs for children who have lost their hair through illness. If you can support her we would really appreciate it...thanks. They're aiming to raise £2,000. You can donate via this website: THANK YOU

(Incidentally, Evie sings some great backing vocals on 2 tracks on my forthcoming solo album 'Celestial Fire'!).
