What I do...



There are many reasons to be excited about new Glasgow-based five-piece Ímar – not least 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. By far the best and biggest reason, however, is how excited the band are themselves.

What do you get when you mix together three of the Isle of Man’s most well respected trad musicians with one of Scotland’s fresh up and coming talents? Mec Lir - bringing foot stomping beats to your favourite trad tunes.

Session Musician

In between Imar and MecLir, I spend my time working as a session musician. I have traveled all over the globe. Working with everyone from trad great Donald Shaw to German pop superstars "The Kelly Family" and everything in between. Studio, live and touring, Im your guy.
