Music Programme 2018

Five seriously qualified musicians from Scotland and Ireland take a fresh look at particularly Irish traditional music. Ìmar excited their audiences at Tønder Festival in 2017 and are back in 2018. All five members play in a series of other bands, several of whom have appeared at Tønder Festival on numerous occasions. Ìmar comprises Adam Brown, bodhrán, (Rura); Ryan Murphy, uilleann pipes, flute, (Mànran); Adam Rhodes, bouzouki, (Barrule/Mabon); Mohsen Amini, concertina (Talisk) and Benedict Morris, fiddle. They all know each other from Glasgow’s exceedingly active music scene and through Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Éireann, the Irish traditional music network.The group comes bespattered with fine reviews and both individually and in their various other contexts, they boast awards such as the BBC Young Folk Award and several All-Britain and All-Ireland titles in traditional music. Ìmar grew naturally out of the session scene, for as bodhrán player Adam Brown puts it, “It’s just worked from the moment we sat down and played together.” This is your only chance to hear Ìmar at a Danish festival in 2018.
