DAIMH in Concert
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.

MacIsaac and MacKenzie

Alexis MacIsaac and Calum MacKenzie are a wife and husband duo who have established a unique musical partnership that combines Cape Breton piano playing with a modern approach to Celtic fiddle. While Calums musical approach has been heavily influenced by his Hebridean roots and his native Cape Breton culture, Alexis playing is a multi-faceted harmonization of Irish, Scottish, and Cape Breton styles.
Though their respective approaches to music are distinct, together they create a clean and seamless sound that is nonetheless grounded in tradition. As a fiddle player, Alexis has performed throughout North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and the United Arab Emirates with acts such as Riverdance, The High Kings, and The Paperboys, while Calum has been fortunate to play with, and accompany, many local Cape Breton artists and international musicians both at home and abroad in the Caribbean and in Scotland on piano and fiddle.

Their debut album, The Bay Street Sessions, is a compilation of original and traditional compositions and arrangements, and secured them a 2017 Canadian Folk Music Award nomination for traditional instrumental group of the year and a 2018 East Coast Music Awards Nomination for "Roots/Traditional Recording of the Year." The album is infused with centuries-old feeling and contemporary flair: their mutual love for music articulated in each note and phrase from bow to key.
