Ímar March 15 @ 7:00 pm $20 – $35

Gesa Power House Theatre welcomes back to our stage Celtic folk band Ímar on Friday, March 15, 2024 at 7 p.m. This programming is supported in part by the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF) and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Known for “genuinely jaw-dropping collective virtuosity” as The Scotsman puts it, BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners, Glasgow-based five-piece Ímar stand out from the crowd – by taking things back to basics.

With a line-up featuring members of Mànran, Mec Lir, RURA, and Talisk and a heavyweight collective haul of top prizes – including the 2018 BBC Radio 2 Musician Of The Year, 2016 BBC Radio Scotland Young Musician of the Year, BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award, Young Folk Award, nine All-Ireland and eight All-Britain titles – the group’s formation embodies a personal reconnection with its members’ formative years, dating back long before their recent camaraderie around Glasgow’s justly celebrated session scene.

Adam Brown (bodhrán), Adam Rhodes (bouzouki), Mohsen Amini (concertina), Ryan Murphy (uilleann pipes) and Tomás Callister (fiddle) share a strong background in Irish music – although only Murphy actually hails from Ireland; Rhodes and Callister are from the Isle of Man, whilst Amini is a Glasgow native, and Brown originally from Suffolk. It is these foundations which underpin many of Ímar’s distinctive qualities, in both instrumentation and material. The band’s unmistakable synergy centers on the overlapping cultural heritage between Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man. All three places once shared the same Gaelic language and a similar kinship endures between their musical traditions.

Reserved seating tickets are $35 ($20 for students) and are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. To join our +Power Club, learn more and click here.
