Winner of the 2016 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, and 2017 Scots Trad
Music Awards ‘Up and Coming’ nominee, 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 from Cape Breton,
Eastern Europe and Ireland. Recent performance highlights include
Cambridge Folk Festival, Celtic Connections, Fairport’s Cropredy
Convention, Piping Live and Wickham Festival, as well as TV features on
Port, Seirm and the BBC Alba Hogmanay show. For Tradfest Brighde will be
joined by fiddler Aidan O’Rourke (Lau).
