Taking their name from the Scottish Gaelic word for kinship, Gaelic Supergroup Daimh (pronounced dive) are a 5 piece band based in Lochaber in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland; an area as much renowned for its scenic beauty as for its rich musical and cultural heritage. A long-established favourite at folk festivals in Scotland, Ireland and across Europe, 2014 saw the group win the Eiserner Eversteiner European Folk Music Award in the 23nd German Folkherbst competition and also nominated for Folk Band of the Year in the Scots Trad Music Awards.
Daimh Gaelic Supergroup and un-challenged champions of straight in the eye Highland music are based around West Lochaber and the Isle of Skye.
Formed around the turn of the century and taking the name from the Gaelic word for kinship Daimh (pronounced Dive) have taken their contemporary take of Highland and Gaelic music to over 20 countries, setting audiences alight from Moscow to San Francisco.
With a reputation as giants of the Bagpipes and Fiddle, Angus Mackenzie and Gabe McVarish lead the melodic powerhouse with fellow founder member Ross Martin underpinning the groove on the Guitar. The Band are joined by new guy Murdo Yogi Cameron on Mandola and Accordion to complete the instrumental line up.
Daimh have always had the renown and notoriety of working with some of the finest Gaelic singers in Scotland and the current line up only serves to cement that distinction with the addition of the Gaelic firmaments most rapidly rising star, Ellen MacDonald on vocals.
Recent accolades include last years award for the Best Folk Band in Europe at the prestigious Folkherbst competition in Germany and most recently winner of Folk Band of the Year at the Scottish Traditional Music Awards.
