Dallahan is one of the most distinct forces in the international folk music scene. Forged in Scotland and Ireland’s traditional music community and drawing on the traditional music of the Balkans and North America, they create an original and seamless musical montage, blended with contemporary influences from jazz, funk and pop music.

Following the release of their 2014 acclaimed debut album ‘When The Day Is On The Turn’, the band toured extensively in North America and Europe, captivating audiences at prestigious international events such as Milwaukee Irish Fest, Celtic Connections and Tonder Festival. 2019 saw the release of their third album Smallworld, with songs that explore themes of unrequited love, famine and racial inequality with instrumentals that move from traditional Irish tunes and Roma Gypsy melodies to genre-defying originals.
