DESCRIPTION:

This five piece, Glasgow’s hottest new folk property, celebrates the release of its debut album – Afterlight.

This five piece is Glasgow’s hottest new folk property.  In just one year their debut video has been viewed more than 200,000 times – whilst their touring credits already include the opening set at 2016 Cambridge Folk Festival and Belgium’s Dranouter Festival just a week later.  This tour is a celebration of the release of their debut album – Afterlight – released at Celtic Connections in January.

With a line-up featuring members of Mànran, RURA, Talisk and Barrule, they also have a heavyweight collective haul of top prizes – including the 2016 BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, a BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, nine All-Ireland and eight All-Britain titles.

Imar is Adam Brown (bodhrán), Adam Rhodes (bouzouki), Mohsen Amini (concertina), Ryan Murphy (uilleann pipes) and Tomás Callister (fiddle). Their unmistakable synergy, however, centres on the overlapping musical heritage of Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man.
