Brìghde Chaimbeul + Nessy Williamson

Fri 8 November 2019 - 7.30pm

Winner of the 2016 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, Isle of Skye musician and piper Brighde Chaimbeul is one of Scotland's fastest rising stars. A native Gaelic speaker, her style is rooted in her indigenous language and culture, but draws inspiration from a variety of piping traditions as diverse as Cape Breton, Eastern Europe and Ireland.

Brighde launched her debut album, The Reeling, on River Lea Records at a special concert at Celtic Connections earlier this year. The record is inspired by old tunes from gaelic song and canntaireachd traditions as well as the global piping traditions that have been a major influence on Brighde's career to date.

"Simultaneously ancient and modern, profound and direct", said The Guardian of The Reeling, their Folk Album of the Month.
