GLASGOW'S hottest new folk combo, the five-piece Ímar have created more than a bit of a stir in little over a year since their formation, and the good news is, they're on their way to Evesham.

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 year’s Cambridge Folk Festival.

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.

A spokesman said: "It is these foundations which underpin many of Ímar’s distinctive

qualities, in both instrumentation and material. Ímar’s 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."

The date for the the diary will be Saturday September 16 at The Fleece in Evesham.
