Winner of the Horizon Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2019 – Brìghde Chaimbeul is one of Scotland’s fastest rising stars.

A native Gaelic speaker who grew up in Sleat, her style is rooted in her indigenous language and culture, but draws inspiration from a variety of piping traditions.


Her debut album ‘The Reeling’ has had an extraordinary response since its launch at a sold out Celtic Connections show at the start of 2019. Named Folk Album Of The Month by The Guardian and given five star reviews in both fRoots and Songlines.


She will be joined by violinist Aidan O’Rourke from experimental folk trio Lau, who also produced the album.


“Simultaneously ancient and modern, profound and direct.” Folk Album of the Month – The Guardian
