An Dannsa Dub

Music is one big conversation, and few bands live at the heart of it like An Dannsa Dub.

Born from a love of traditional Scottish folk, dub reggae, and dance music, together they summon the joyous, communal energy of a cèilidh and a sound system session.

An Dannsa Dub’s name comes from the Gaelic for ‘The Dub Dance’, and their sound celebrates the ancient Gaelic and West African rhythms that influenced reggae, which in turn, via sound system culture and dub’s pioneering remixes, produced modern dance music. Their live shows and recordings are a seamless, pulsating fusion of all this and more.

The band brought this unique, unstoppable sound to their recently released debut album, Air An Turas, featuring stacks of exciting collaborations, which will thrill the audience at Brewery Arts in Kendal, as well as throughout the international tour and the UK festival circuit.

They have previously performed for a 10,000-strong crowd at Boomtown Fair and have headlined a sold-out show at Celtic Connections, the UK’s premier Celtic music festival.

2021’s self-titled EP ‘An Dannsa Dub’ brought the group worldwide acclaim. The release has been played on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio Nan Gàidheal and BBC Scotland. It’s been supported by Don Letts, who included it in his ‘Best Of 22’, as well as Tom Robinson, Mungo’s Hi Fi, and OBF.
