Had an amazing night at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards last night! Not only great to receive the horizon award with the Ímar lads, but also extremely chuffed for the Isle of Man as Mera Royle Music did the island proud in winning the Young Folk Award. 🇮🇲🇮🇲🇮🇲

Amazing to hear that Ímar have been nominated for a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award! Not only that, but a proud day for #ManxMusic as the fab Manx harper Mera Royle is also up for the Young Folk Award, and quite right too :) 🇮🇲🏆🇮🇲🏆🇮🇲🏆

Unfortunately when working with a big faceless organisation like @YouTube, when something goes wrong there’s no-one there to help. If you saw any of Ímar’s videos, or would like to see more, give YouTube a nudge and ask that they at least give them a chance to fix whatever went wrong.

If you’ve got a couple of minutes to spare, it’d be really great if you could head on over to the link below and give Ímar a vote for ‘Best Live Act’ and ‘Best Album’ in the 2017 Scots Trad Awards. We’re up against some absolute corkers so spread the word and give us a hand, thanks!
