      Dàimh: 'Gaelic Supergroup' from the Scottish Highlands & Islands

      Taking their name from the Gaelic word for kinship, Gaelic super group Dàimh are coming to Deertrees in Harrison for their only Maine appearance on Saturday July 25th. Dàimh fuses 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. Dàimh (pronounced "dive") are 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 longestablished favorite at folk festivals in Scotland, Ireland and across Europe, twice nominated for Folk Band of the Year at the Scots Traditional Music Awards, Dàimh are also regulars on BBC television.

This summer is our 84th season. The theatre was the vision of opera singer Enrica Clay-Dillon. It was designed by Harrison G. Wiseman, a famous theatre architect of the day who was instructed to create the most acoustically and technically perfect theatre possible. Constructed of rose hemlock, in the Adirondack Style, with hand-carved fixtures and near perfect acoustics,the 300 seat theatre was considered as fine as any on Broadway! Now listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, Deertrees is operated as a non-profit organization and presents a diverse schedule of performances and events, both musical and theatrical, every summer.
