AFTER THEIR SELL OUT SHOW LAST YEAR, AN DANNSA DUB RETURN TO FROME FOR A TWO NIGHT RESIDENCY AT THE TREE HOUSE (AS PART OF FROME FESTIVAL)

An Dannsa Dub-future dub from Ancient Scotland

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. Their name comes from the Gaelic for “The Dub Dance”. Their sound celebrates the ancient Gaelic and West African rhythms that influenced reggae, which in turn, via soundsystem 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.

An Dannsa Dub have carried this unique, unstoppable sound to the UK festival circuit. They’ve thrilled 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 onBBC 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. The debut album Air An Turas released 17th March 2023 features stacks of exciting collaborations, An Dannsa Dub are gearing up for a busy year of international touring. Keep your eyes peeled for a show near you…
