Ímar

In this year’s fourth and final Sounds Green we welcome new Glasgow-based five-piece Ímar to Cambridge’s beautiful Botanic Garden ahead of their debut at the city’s Folk Festival later in July.

Formed just this year, Ímar have got the folk world buzzing like no other band on the scene today. With 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) Ímar’s unmistakable synergy centres on a shared love of the overlapping cultural heritage between Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man.

Presented in partnership with Cambridge Folk Festival

“Definitely an act to watch!”
