It’s the second day of the Ímar Germany tour and we’ve started hard! Great craic in Germany last night with the boys 🙂 Thanks Nadine for the gig video! http://www.imarband.com/gigs
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. 🇮🇲🇮🇲🇮🇲 Now I just need to get rid of this hangover before …

A year ago! I didn’t play on this one, but the camera work is outstanding don’t you think? 😉 #tunesinoddplaces #mohsenisintheemergencylane #extremeconcertina People often ask how we find time to practice… #tourlife #themar #afterlight Posted by Ímar on Saturday, 12 November 2016
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! https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/TradAwards2017 If you’ve …
The next gig in the diary for Ímar, Glasgow’s Celtic Connections in January 2018!
