Brìghde Chaimbeul

silent green presents

Brìghde Chaimbeul (Bree-chu Chaym-bul) is a leading purveyor of experimental Celtic music and of the Scottish smallpipes; a bellows-powered set of bagpipes with a double-note drone. She has devised a completely unique way of arranging for pipe music that emphasises therich textural  drones of the instrument; the constancy of sound thatcreates a trance-like  atmosphere, played with enticing virtuosic liquidity.

Her style is rooted in her native Gaelic language but continues to push the boundaries of her instrument and her sound. Her most recent album Carry them With Us featuring renowned artist Colin Stetson has been widely acclaimed and has been most recently profiled in The Guardian, The Irish Times, Stereogum and Dazed & Confused.

Brìghde's mesmerizing musicianship has earned her global recognition, including a BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award, BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award, and in 2021 performed to world  leaders at the opening cemerony of COP 26.

Brìghde has also been featured on Caroline Polacheck's ground-breaking album Desire, I Want To Turn Into You as part of the single Blood And Butter. She also collaborated with highly respected musicians from across Scotland, Ireland and beyond including Aidan O'Rourke, Radie Peat (Lankum), Gruff Rhys, Carlos Núñez Muñoz, Ross Ainslie, Cormac Begley.
