An Dannsa Dub and Samson Sounds at Glenuig Hall
Immerse yourself with some incredible world dance music; and dust off the January blues with two of Scotland’s Premier reggae / afro/ dub bands; An Dannsa Dub and Samson Sounds.
This is a rare opportunity to catch both acts in such a remote location, but the Glenuig Hall’s reputation and legendary setting should not disappoint.
First in the line-up, we have the pleasure of hosting An Dannsa Dub (The ”Dub Dance’ in Gaelic) are a relatively new addition to Scotland’s music scene offering a unique twist of reggae and dub, with a Scottish traditional flair.
This outfit is the brainchild of dub vocalist & producer Tom Spirals and Scottish traditional musician Euan McLaughlin formed in 2020. The 6 piece live band fuses the mystical energy and instruments of traditional Scottish music and Gaelic song with the heavy, meditative, driving basslines digital dub music. The band is a unique mix of experienced traditional folk musicians and Dub Reggae specialists, using acoustic and digital instruments. The result is an explosive heavyweight blend of what the band call ‘Future Dub from Ancient Scotland’.
Secondly, are the much loved and revered, Samson Sounds who have a well established fanbase in the Lochaber area. Samson Sounds are Glasgow based creators of positive dancefloor vibrations.
Using a combination of live vocals, guitar, percussion and brass with electronic musicality, they bring a wide range of grooves and energy into any situation. West African and Latin rhythms and melodies are brought into focus with Scottish influences, emphasizing the global nature and power of music. Their unique stage presence and uplifting performances will never fail to bring smiles to faces and motion to bodies!
The band has grown through the rich UK Soundsystem culture, playing and performing in venues and festivals nationally and internationally.
