Underneath the Stars Festival 2017

A quintet made up of a dazzling selection of musicians from countries and bands fairly far and wide, Imar, all bar fiddler Tom Callister, somehow managed to remain seated (Mohsen Amini in particular a livewire animated concertina presence) while playing a vibrant version of Gaelic crossed with Manx folk that proved nigh impossible not to feel carried along by. Their impressive ‘Afterlight’ album was brought to pulsating life and showcased some absolutely dazzling musicianship – oh yes, in case we hadn’t already mentioned.
