Aidan O’Rourke & Brídghe Caimbuel le Róisín Chambers.
2 February, 2023Time
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, her style is rooted in her indigenous language and culture, but draws inspiration from a variety of piping traditions such as from Cape Breton, Eastern Europe and Ireland. 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.
Aidan O’Rourke is a founding member of experimental folk trio Lau. Working closely together the duo has devised a completely new way of arranging for pipe music that emphasises the rich textural drones of the smallpipes; the constancy of sound that creates a trance-like quality in the tunes.
Róisín Chambers is a singer and fiddle player whose influences draw on the Connemara lineage of sean nós singing. Chambers prides herself as a Dublin exponent of the great sean nós tradition and with a voice of unflinching splendour,lends a forensic realism to her interpretation of the old songs. Support by Belfast based trio McauleyMcKeownMcCullagh who’s music skirt the borders of Irish Traditional Music, free improvisation and human-computer interaction.
