On the 27th and 28th November we are celebrating St Andrew’s Day with two fabulous concerts at Hands Up for Trad Music Club. Friday night features Rura and Saturday Ìmar. It would be great to see you there! None of these bands have performed since the start of lockdown so this will be two one off concerts! These concerts are completely live and will feature an opportunity to ask the bands questions at the end of the concert. You’ll also be able to watch the concert for 7 days afterwords.
As usual we are selling a general admission ticket or a ticket plus recording of the live performance. You can buy tickets here. Both gigs start at 8pm. We also have a discounted ticket where you can purchase tickets to both concerts.
RURA are a multi award-winning act and one of Scotland’s most sought-after folk bands. With three heralded albums, RURA affirm their position as one of Scotland’s leading instrumental groups.
Their exquisitely rugged yet refined blend of fiddle, Highland pipes, flute, bodhrn and guitar has won a devoted following in many corners of the globe, amongst audiences and critics alike.
FIDDLE – Jack Smedley
PIPES/WHISTLES/PIANO – Steven Blake
GUITAR – Adam Brown
BODHRÁN/FLUTE – David Foley
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, Talisk, RURA and Barrule, 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, BBC 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.
