We are pleased to welcome An Dannsa Dub for their first major performance in Cumbria.
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 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.
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.

“We hired An Dannsa Dub to headline our Celtic Connections gig in January 2023.They didn’t disappoint! Tickets sold out well in advance and on the night they provided a spectacular performance. Dealing with the band was an absolute pleasure from start to finish.”
With their first album, featuring stacks of exciting collaborations, An Dannsa Dub are gearing up for a busy year of international touring across 2023.
