Forging the sound of the New Tradition, Dàimh are West Highland Music’s proudest exponents. Dàimh, the Gaelic word for Connection, perfectly describes the electrifying musical interplay between the individual band members and audiences attending their breath-taking live shows around the world. It also evokes the connection to the deep musical well from which they draw their inspiration. On the Scottish music scene, the name Dàimh has come to represent the sound of a time and place - a musical integrity that many strive to emulate. Formed over 20 years ago, the band embodies the resurgence of Gaelic culture. The current lineup includes younger musicians that have progressed through the thriving Fèisean movement and Gaelic medium education system. They join the 3 remaining founding members of Dàimh to continue the cycle of tradition. Recent achievements include receiving the MG ALBA Folk Band of the Year Award in 2015 and 2018 and passing the halfway mark on their career ambition of performing on every populated Scottish Island.
