2015 was an amazing year for Dàimh. We started the year by picking up the award for Best Folk Band in Europe at the Folkherbst competition in Plauen, Germany, and finished the year by being named Folk Band of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards in Dundee!
In between, we recorded a new album, The Hebridean Sessions, which has been our fastest selling album to date. We also embarked on our first tour of America, going coast to coast with gigs in New York City all the way to San Francisco.
We kick off 2016 with a special concert at Celtic Connections celebrating fifteen years since our first album, Moidart to Mabou. We’ve invited seven Gaelic singers that have sung, toured and recorded with us over these years for a special one-off evening of songs.

We have two more tours in the US to look forward to this year with the first one starting at the end of February (check out our website for dates). We also have a few other exciting things up our sleeve so keep up to date with Facebook, Twitter and our newsletter (we promise not to fill your emails full of junk!!!).
