THE BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Winners Ímar will play The Fleece Inn, Bretforton, this May, bringing a touch of Glaswegian flair to Worcestershire.

A spokesman said: “Following a stellar start to the year with sold-out performances at the Celtic Connections Festival in Glasgow and the Serbian National Theatre in Novi Sad, as well as taking home the Horizon Award at 2018’s BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Ímar will be on tour in the UK this spring, to continue the fun.

“Featuring current and former members of Mànran, RURA, Talisk, Barrule, Cara, Mabon and The Lowground, whose collectively-crammed trophy cabinet includes a BBC Young Folk Award and several All-Britain/All-Ireland titles, Glasgow-based five-piece Ímar have quickly established a name for themselves in their own right.”

The spokesman added: “With recent appearances at Denmark’s Tønder Festival and Canada’s Celtic Colours Festival under their belt, and after two nominations in the 2017 Scots Trad Award for Album of the Year and Best Live Act, they recently emerged from recording their second album with a new energy and fresh tunes for their upcoming tour.”

And now they’re heading this way

The date for the diary is May 15
