A powerhouse instrumental quintet, Ímar’s unmissable synergy centres on the overlapping cultural heritage between Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man. All five musicians share a strong background in traditional Irish music, underpinning the group’s distinctive qualities in both instrumentation and material. Festival headliners throughout the UK, Europe and Canada, Ímar’s supergroup line-up features members of Mànran, RURA, Talisk and Barrule, and a heavyweight collective haul of top prizes in the UK and Ireland – with the group embodying a personal reconnection with its members’ formative years, dating back long before their recent camaraderie around Glasgow’s celebrated session scene.
