Forging the sound of the New Tradition, Daimh are West Highland Music’s proudest exponents.
Daimh, the Gaelic word for Connection, perfectly describes the electrifying musical interplay between the individual band members and portrays the interaction with audiences attending their breath-taking live shows around the world. It also translates as the connection to the deep musical well from which they draw their inspiration. On the Scottish music scene the name Daimh has come to represent a sound of a time and place a musical integrity that many strive to emulate.
Formed over 20 years ago the band have embodied the current wave of resurgence in Gaelic culture; the current line up includes younger musicians that have progressed through the thriving Feisean movement and Gaelic medium education system and joined the 3 remaining founding members to continue the cycle of the tradition.
Recent achievements include receiving the MG ALBA Folk Band of the Year Award in 2015 and 2018 and passing the halfway mark on their career ambition of performing on every populated Scottish Island.

The Ciaran Ryan Band is the ferocious new line-up born from the release of Ciaran’s debut solo album “Banjaxed”.

This will be their second visit to Arisaig, having rocked it at the the Fèis na Mara festival in 2019. This will be a party night, not a seated concert. There will be a full licensed bar until 1am and a support set from blistering hot local band Fras. Dancing shoes only please! Tickets HERE.

Pictish Trail’s critically acclaimed first pair of albums Secret Soundz Vols. 1 & 2 released in 2008 and 2013 respectively were gloriously eclectic slices of lo-fi folk-pop, later revived as a deluxe double-vinyl in 2014 by Moshi Moshi. His third album Future Echoes was released to further critical acclaim in September 2016, and went on to be shortlisted for the Scottish Album of the Year Award by popular vote, before being re-issued by Fire Records in the summer of 2018. Thumb World was released on Fire Records in February 2020. Pictish Trail has toured the world both as a headliner in his own right, and as support for artists such as Belle & Sebastian, Sea Power, Slow Club and KT Tunstall. He has performed at festivals including Glastonbury, Field Day, Bestival, Deer Shed, Celtic Connections, the Edinburgh Fringe and – for an extraordinary and surely record-breaking 19 consecutive years* (*if you count a remote livestreamed show in 2020) – Green Man in Wales, Pictish Trail’s psychedelic-bucolic spiritual home-from-home. Tickets HERE.
