We’ve just returned from a brilliant week at the Celtic Colours Festival, which takes place on Cape Breton Island on Canada’s east coast..and is also home to our piper; Angus! This is an amazing festival, with great audiences, brilliant scenery and fantastic volunteers who really make the festival a unique experience. Here’s a photo of us in Angus’ local; The Red Shoe Pub…we only managed to finish 3 kegs before our afternoon gig…


We’re heading to Germany next week for some gigs that include taking part in the prestigious Folkherbst Music Award. Check out our GIG PAGE for more info on the concerts, and hope to see you there.

We look forward to January every year…not for the weather but the 3 weeks of gigs, tunes and craic in Glasgow at Celtic Connections. This year we return on the Friday 30th January in The Fruitmarket with DàimhMÒR : the BIG band, our expanded festival line-up featuring Drums, Double Bass, Trombone, Double Fiddles, Accordion and even some Beat-Boxing. We’ll be sharing the stage with West Coast folk rockers Skerryvore. Come out and bring your dancing shoes!!

Delighted to announce that we’ve signed up with Pat Garrett and his agency, Real Good Music. This means that we’re coming to the states next summer withdates booked in August and September. We can’t wait to Dàimh into our American adventures!

…and finally

Damian played his last gig with the band at the Celtic Colours Festival. He’s played with us for the last four years bringing different musical ideas to the band and also many of his own tunes. This culminated in TUNESHIP, our most recent cd which featured all our own compositions. Damian will continue playing in our expanded big band line-up dàimhMÒR and he’s also working on many of his own projects in his home studio on the Isle of Eigg, including Metta. Go check it out! We’d like to thank Damian and wish him all the best. You’ve left your mark!

Taking Damian’s place in the line-up is long time musical friend of the band, Murdo Cameron. Murdo hails from Glenelg (a stone’s throw from the Isle of Skye) and started out as a piper and accordion player. He has since become a very well respected accompanist on guitar and mandola and we’re looking forward to some new adventures with Murdo!
