Dàimh are a Gaelic Supergroup and West Highland Music’s proudest exponents, based around West Lochaber and the Isle of Skye. Formed over 20 years ago the band's the name is from the Gaelic word for “kinship” Daimh (pronounced Dive). They 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. They do so 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. Joining them on vocals is the Gaelic firmament’s rising star, Ellen MacDonald.

Irish singer-songwriter Karan Casey has been blazing a trail for over 25 years. She is a lover of ballads, love songs and searing versions of social justice songs. A great story teller, she has toured the world connecting with her audience through Ireland’s past, but crucially repositioning women and songs in a universal and a modern setting. Karan has been striking out lately to explore new areas of performance on the piano, spoken word and theatre.

Karan has released 11 albums as well as contributing to many other artists’ projects.  She has appeared on more than 50 albums so far and toured across the world performing with her own band, as well as collaborating with a diverse range of musicians. These include Maura O’Connell, James Taylor, Bela Fleck, Boston Pops Orchestra, Kate Ellis, Niall Vallely, Pauline Scanlon, The Chieftains, The Dubliners, Peggy Seeger, Karen Matheson, Mick Flannery, Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin, Tim O’Brien and Solas.
