Doors 7.30pm | Tickets £15.50 | Theatre

Brìghde Chaimbeul (Bree-chuh CHaym-bul) is a leading purveyor of experimental Celtic music and of the Scottish smallpipes; a bellows-powered set of bagpipes with a double-note drone. She has devised a completely unique way of arranging for pipe music that emphasises the rich textural drones of the instrument; the constancy of sound that creates a trance-like atmosphere, played with enticing virtuosic liquidity.

Brìghde’s mesmerizing musicianship has earned her global recognition, including a BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award, and in 2021 performed to world leaders at the opening cemerony of COP 26.

Her style is rooted in her native Gaelic language but continues to push the boundaries of her instrument and her sound. Her most recent album ‘Carry them With Us’ (currently shortlisted for Scottish Album of the Year Award) featuring renowned artist Colin Stetson has been widely acclaimed and has been most recently profiled in The Guardian, The Irish Times, Stereogum and Dazed & Confused. She has also been featured on Caroline Polacheck’s ground-breaking album ‘Desire, I Want To Turn Into You.’

Brìghde has also collaborated with highly respected musicians from across Scotland, Ireland and beyond including Aidan O’Rourke, Radie Peat (Lankum), Gruff Rhys, Carlos Nunez, Ross Ainslie, Cormac Begley.

Brìghde’s pipes are made by renowned makers Fin Moore and Hamish Moore.
