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!
With this recording we wanted to gather together tunes that we have been playing since the early days of the band. The material here never made it onto previous albums because we couldn’t find a place for it, didn’t believe we were doing it justice or simply felt that the tunes were too commonly-played and overlooked them in favour of less well-known material.
After a very busy summer with various projects, we’re really excited to be heading the U.S. this week for the first time. We’ll have special guest, Hannah Read on vocals and fiddle for the first leg of the tour. Check out the poster below and come say hello if we’re in your area!
Really excited to be heading out on tour over the next wee while. We’re going to be recording a couple of the gigs at the end of the tour (Tarskavaig Hall and Grogarry Lodge) for a live acoustic album. Spaces are limited, so if you’re interested in being part of a special recording please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org as there won’t be tickets available at the venues. Check out all the dates on our poster and also on our website!
