Brìghde Chaimbeul + Dylan Kerr

silent green presents

Brighde 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 that
creates a trance-like atmosphere, played with enticing virtuosic liquidity. Her style is rooted in her native Gaeliclanguage but  continues to pushthe boundaries of her instrument and her sound.

Brighde's latest album Carry them With Us, created in collaboration with respected artist Colin Stetson, has received high praise and has recently been reviewed in The Guardian, The Irish Times, Stereogum and Dazed & Confused. She was also part of Caroline Polacheck's album Desire, I Want To Turn Into You and has collaborated with outstanding musicians from Scotland, Ireland and beyond, including Aidan O'Rourke, Radie Peat (Lankum), Gruff Rhys, Carlos Nuñez, Ross Ainslie and Cormac Begley.

Dylan Kerr
Working within improvisation, process composition and just intonation, Dylan Kerr's musical output links their research into sacred music and extended vocal techniques. Combining their voice and instruments with electro-acoustic methods, they explore various genres from minimalism and noise, to drone, metal and folk. They also perform under the monikers Baptist Goth and Scorzia.
