Jude Rogers, The Guardian
Playing the Scottish smallpipes, Brìghde Chaimbeul is a leading contemporary performer of Celtic music and a native Gaelic speaker from the Isle of Skye. Though her style is rooted in her native language and culture, her performances take inspiration from a variety of global traditions. She performed at the 2022 Festival opening event, MACRO, at Murrayfield Stadium before recording this intimate session for our At Home programme.
Chaimbeul has been making waves in recent years, winning the BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award and releasing her debut album The Reeling in 2019, and performing at the opening ceremony of COP 26 in 2021. We are delighted to share Chaimbeul’s quiet and enthralling artistry with you.
