Glasgows hottest new folk property, five-piece Ímar have created more than a bit of a stir in little over a year since their formation.

Their debut video, unleashed to the world during Celtic Connections 2016, has been viewed in excess of 200,000 times - whilst their touring credits already including the opening set at that years Cambridge Folk Festival (technically, the bands first billed gig - a plaudit surely amongst as rare as they come) and headlining a stage at Belgiums Dranouter Festival just a week later.

"energy thats seemingly bursting to let loose" - The Herald

The Irish and Manx flavoured quintet now present their debut album - Afterlight - released on January 27, 2017, at their official Celtic Connections debut in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. This ahead of a UK launch tour in April, and numerous summer festivals including Denmarks legendary Tønder Festival where they were one of the first six names to be announced for its 2017 outing.

With a line-up featuring members of Mànran, RURA, Talisk and Barrule, and a heavyweight collective haul of top prizes  including the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Musician Of The Year, 2016 BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award, BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, nine All-Ireland and eight All-Britain titles  the groups formation embodies a personal reconnection with its members formative years, dating back long before their recent camaraderie around Glasgows justly celebrated session scene.

"exceptional" - The Living Tradition

Adam Brown (bodhrán), Adam Rhodes (bouzouki), Mohsen Amini (concertina), Ryan Murphy (uilleann pipes) and Tomás Callister (fiddle) share a strong background in Irish music  although only Murphy actually hails from Ireland; Rhodes and Callister are from the Isle of Man, whilst Amini is a Glasgow native, and Brown originally from Suffolk  and it is these foundations which underpin many of Ímars distinctive qualities, in both instrumentation and material.

Ímars unmistakable synergy, however, centres on the overlapping cultural heritage between Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man. All three places once shared the same Gaelic language, and a similar, clearly potent, kinship endures between their musical traditions.
