Fun. It is all about the joy of the music. This is what the members of Imar found when they sat down for the first time. With nine All-Ireland and eight All-Britain titles between them, these 5 highly-skilled instrumentalists come together in a no-frills, yet bombastic presentation of Celtic music.

The infectious joy they share with their audiences can be read in the comments of their social media pages, the most glowing coming from presenters who brought Imar to their audience.  Of their live show, The Scotsman says “Combining five outstanding instrumentalists from Scotland, Ireland, England and the Isle of Man, each with early roots in Irish music, their sound centres on a brilliantly melodious frontline of uilleann pipes, fiddle and concertina… Genuinely jaw-dropping collective virtuosity supplied frills to burn”. Having released two widely-praised albums to date, Imar is at work on their third album which will surely add to their quick rise.
