Hailed as “one of the most exhilarating acoustic bands on the Celtic map” by Irish Music Magazine, Dàimh (pronounced like “Dive”) are a long established favorite at folk festivals in Scotland, Ireland, and across Europe. Coming to Delaware as part of their first U.S. Tour,
Dàimh are based in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland, an area renowned for its rich musical and cultural heritage. Twice nominated for Folk Band of the Year at the Scots Traditional Music Awards, Dàimh are also regulars on BBC television.

Taking their name from the Gaelic word for “kinship,” Dàimh members include Ross Martin on guitar; Angus MacKenzie on Highland pipes, border pipes and whistles; Gabe McVarish on fiddle; Murdo Cameron on mandola, mandolin, and accordion; and Hanna Reid of New York on vocals. Wherever they perform, they amaze their audiences with their phenomenal instrumental arsenal and commanding vocal performances.

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. “Dàimh have carved a reputation from the bedrock of Gaelic culture…authentic Gaelic music with a modern edge and a magnificent range of expression.” (Folkworld)
