Taking their name from the Gaelic word for kinship, the “Gaelic Super Group” Dàimh (pronounced 'dive') are based in the West Highlands of Scotland. From pyrotechnic jigs and reels to achingly poignant ballads, they run the full expressive gamut of folk music at its best, and are justly renowned for their thrilling live shows.
“This is a great Gaelic band and definitely worthy of the title Gaelic Super Group.”
BRIGHT YOUNG FOLK
“Dàimh have carved a reputation from the bedrock of Gaelic culture… authentic Gaelic music with a modern edge and a magnificent range of expression.”

A native Gaelic speaker, her style is rooted in her own language and culture, but draws inspiration also from a variety of piping traditions such as those of Cape Breton, Eastern Europe and Ireland.
