Winners of the Danny Kyle Open Stage 2018, DLÙ are a trad fusion band from Glasgow. Comprising of Moilidh NicGriogair, Zach Ronan, Aidan Spiers, Andrew Grossart, Seoras Chlad, and guest vocalist Joseph McCluskey, their eclectic musical backgrounds influence their original melodies and arrangements, giving the band their own distinctive sound.
Their name derives from the Gaelic word ‘dlùth’, meaning tight-knit and close, a tribute not only to the friendship between members but also to the band’s origins which lie in the Glasgow Gaelic School.
DLÙ released their debut album ‘Moch’ in February 2022 at the Òran Mòr, Glasgow. Their album has widely recognised with international radio plays and reviews.
As Gaelic speakers, DLÙ feel passionately about keeping their culture alive by writing music that appeals not only to members of the Gaelic speaking community but to those who have never heard Scottish Traditional music before.
Their second album is due for release spring/summer 2024.
☆☆☆☆ RnR Mag – “An impressive debut from a band that seem destined to become major contributors to the evolution of Gaelic music.”
Folk Radio, UK – “It may only be February, but with MOCH, DLÙ might already be strong contenders for one of the debut albums of the year…”
THE SCOTSMAN – “Scots Gaelic culture in folk music is already strong, but DLÙ represent a new generation”
