Lu­ing

The Oban Times - - Dis­tricts -

AN AVOWED mis­sion to play on all in­hab­ited Scot­tish is­lands brought multi-award win­ning Gaelic band Daimh to the At­lantic Is­lands Cen­tre on the Isle of Lu­ing on Tues­day May 30 with a strong rep­u­ta­tion pre­ced­ing them.

Their blend of in­stru­ments cre­at­ing mu­sic evok­ing pathos and lyri­cal drama, with a sub-struc­ture of ironic hu­mour had the au­di­ence sail­ing across oceans of emo­tion.

It’s easy to un­der­stand the band’s ap­peal as Gaelic Singer of the Year (MG Alba Scot­tish Mu­sic Awards) Ellen McDon­ald punc­tu­ated the out­stand­ing in­stru­men­tals with a great voice.

Or­gan­is­ers said: ‘We thank Daimh for in­clud­ing Lu­ing in their tour – they left a full house on a rolling wave of ap­pre­ci­a­tion.’

Di­amh en­ter­tained in the At­lantic Is­lands Cen­tre.
