There are many reasons to be excited about new Glasgow-based five-piece Ìmar – not least a line-up 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. By far the best and biggest reason, however, is how excited the band are themselves!

So look out, world; light the blue touch-paper and stand well back – Ìmar are on their way!
