An Irish trad band made the best of a traffic jam when they provided motorists with a stunning roadside performance.

Trad band Ímar is made up of members from Scotland Ireland and the Isle of Man.

Adam Rhodes, bouzouki player and camera man, told that the band was touring Germany when they got stuck in traffic.

"A few of us are on tour in Germany and on the way to a gig and we got stuck in some bad traffic. So we figured we'd get the instruments out and play a few tunes.

"The tunes are from a set we've got on our debut album 'Afterlight' which we're releasing at Glasgow's Celtic Connections in January."

He added that the band fits in practise whenever they get a chance.
