The Celtic Music Radio Album of the Week commencing Saturday 23 November is from Dàimh with a brand new album called Tuneship.
Dàimh are based in Lochaber district of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland; an area as much renowned for its scenic beauty as for its rich musical and cultural heritage. Ross Macfadyen from Celtic Music Radio talks to Ross from the band about their new CD and music.
A long‐established favourite at folk festivals in Scotland, Ireland and across Europe, twice nominated for Trad Awards Folk Band of the Year, Dàimh are also regulars on BBC Scotland television.
Recent line‐up changes have seen the introduction of Gaelic champion Griogair Labhruidh on vocals and Uillean Pipes, adding the depth and power of his commanding vocal performances to an already phenomenal instrumental arsenal of bagpipes, fiddle, mandolin and guitar.
Taking their name from the Gaelic word for kinship, Gaelic super group Dàimh, fuse together music from across the Celtic diaspora in a celebration of their common ground. 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.
Celtic Music Radio Album of the Week, Saturday 23 November 12 noon and 12 midnight and Monday 25 November at 6.00pm and Catch Up anytime.
