Ímar- “Avalanche” Album Release Tour 2018
“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, and an essentially no-frills approach to trad-based material”
– The Scotsman.
Ímar are touring the UK in October, to promote the release of their 2nd studio album, Avalanche on 12th October. Avalanche is Ímar’s second studio album and is like a turbo charged version of the first but with a vast range of dynamics, both moments of beauty and power. A strong album that is going to make for an incredible show on tour.
There are many reasons to be excited about the Glasgow-based five-piece Ímar – not least a line-up featuring current and former members of Manran, RURA, Talisk, Barrule, Cara & Mec Lir whose collectively crammed trophy-cabinet includes several BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and All-Britain/All-Ireland titles. By far the best and biggest reason, however, is how excited the band are themselves.
