An acclaimed folk musician, “Hebridean piper Brìghde Chaimbeul gives Scottish folk a startlingly contemporary feel” (The Quietus). Her debut album ‘The Reeling’ saw her team up with Aidan O’Rourke, of experimental folk outfit Lau, who also joins her live, as well as Lankum’s Radie Peat and pioneering singer and piper Rona Lightfoot.
Drawing on her Gaelic heritage and piping traditions across Europe, Chaimbeul’s arrangements craft hypnotic, richly textured soundscapes that are “simultaneously ancient and modern, profound and direct” (The Guardian).
Winner of BBC Radio 2’s Horizon Award, the young musician has already carved out an impressive legacy within contemporary folk.
This is a Bristol Beacon presents show at Bristol Folk House, 40a Park St, Bristol BS1 5JG, rescheduled from The Wardrobe Theatre.
