Dàimh in Concert

September 23, 2023 @ 19:00 - 21:15 UTC+0


The undisputed champions of Gaelic and West Highland Music – Dàimh – play on Lochaber home turf to celebrate the first ever European and Scottish Folk Days. The concert is also the first in this winter’s series of events at Ardgour Memorial Hall, following on last year’s successful return to live gigs through Scotland on Tour.

‘Cùm an fhèill air an là’ – make the celebration on the right day. European Folk Day is being held on the autumnal equinox with events across the continent, and it’s appropriate that the west coast musical heroes should be playing one of the most westerly gigs of the festival.

Dàimh, the Gaelic word for kinship or 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 Dàimh 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.
