Daimh 2019-H no signs.jpg

Forging the sound of the New Tradition, Daimh are West Highland Music’s proudest exponents.

Daimh, the Gaelic word for Connection, perfectly describes the electrifying musical interplay between the individual band members and portrays the interaction with audiences attending their breath-taking live shows around the world.

It also translates as the connection to the deep musical well from which they draw their inspiration. On the Scottish music scene the name Daimh has come to represent a sound of a time and place a musical integrity that many strive to emulate.

Formed over 20 years ago the band have embodied the current wave of resurgence in Gaelic culture; the current line up includes younger musicians that have progressed through the thriving Feisean movement and Gaelic medium education system and joined the 3 remaining founding members to continue the cycle of the 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.
