'One of the most exhilarating acoustic bands on the Celtic map' Irish Music Magazine
'Their music is powerhouse stuff, and their gigs are an overwhelming and exuberant experience.' Songlines
Taking their name from the Scottish Gaelic word for kinship, 'Gaelic Supergroup,' Dàimh (pronounced dive) are a 5 piece band based in Lochaber in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland; an area as much renowned for its scenic beauty as for its rich musical and cultural heritage. A long-established favorite at folk festivals in Scotland, Ireland and across Europe, twice nominated for Folk Band of the Year at the Scots Traditional Music Awards, Dàimh are also regulars on BBC television.
Joined by Gaelic champion, Griogair Labhruidh, on vocals and Uillean Pipes, adding the depth and power of his commanding vocal performances to an already phenomenal instrumental arsenal of bagpipes, fiddle, whistles, mandola and guitar. Form pyrotechnic jigs and reels to achingly poignant ballads, they run the full expressive gamut of folk music at its best, and are justly renowned for their thrilling live shows.
Dàimh has released 5 studio albums to date. Their most recent, Tuneship, once again sees the band blazing a new. trail in the Scottish music scene with their own instrumental compositions skillfully integrated with traditional Gaelic Songs.
