On the Scottish music scene, Daimh a Gaelic Supergroup and un-challenged champions of straight in the eye Highland music are based around West Lochaber and the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Formed around the turn of the century, the band members of Daimh (pronounced Dive) have taken their contemporary take of Highland and Gaelic music to over 20 countries. Daimh, the Gaelic word for Connection, perfectly describes the electrifying contemporary musical interplay between the individual band members and portrays the interaction with audiences attending their breath-taking live shows around the world from Moscow to San Fransico translates as the connection to the deep musical well from which they draw their inspiration. Forging the sound of the New Tradition, Daimh are West Highland Music’s proudest exponents

The band has embodied the current wave of resurgence in Gaelic culture; the current lineup 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. With a reputation as giants of the bagpipes and fiddle Angus Mackenzie and Gabe McVarish lead the melodic powerhouse with fellow founder member Ross Martin underpinning the groove on the guitar. The band is joined by “new guy” Murdo “Yogi” Cameron on mandola and accordion to complete the instrumental lineup. Daimh have always had the renown and notoriety of working with some of the finest Gaelic singers in Scotland and the current line up only serves to cement that distinction with the addition of the Gaelic firmament’s most rapidly rising star, Ellen MacDonald on vocals.

Past 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. Recent accolades include last year’s award for the “Best Folk Band in Europe” at the prestigious Folkherbst competition in Germany and most recently

winner of the “Folk Band of the Year” at the Scottish Traditional Music Awards.
