Brìghde Chaimbeul SCT – OPENING WEEK

Exceptional bagpipe playing bridging deep traditions and modern experiments

Scottish musician Brìghde Chaimbeul has captivated folk music fans and the experimental music community worldwide at a remarkably young age. Her exceptional bagpipe playing delves into deep Celtic traditions while simultaneously appealing to explorers of drone, ambient, and experimental music. Since Brìghde Chaimbeul’s sold-out concert at ALICE in 2020, she has only risen further towards stardom, including releasing an album with American saxophonist Colin Stetson. We are honored to present her during the opening week at ALICE.

From a very young age, Scottish bagpipe player Brìghde Chaimbeul has impressed both the folk music community and the experimental music scene with a broad and personal expression. Through her music, the only 26-year-old Chaimbeul unfolds an incomparable beauty, strength, and richness solely through the use of the bagpipe. Her music paints pictures of dramatic Scottish landscapes and delves into deep Celtic traditions, while Chaimbeul also embraces bagpipe traditions from Eastern Europe, Ireland, and Cape Breton. In a remarkable way, she also creates music that sounds remarkably modern and, with its very physical sensation, speaks to explorers of drone, ambient, and experimental music.

Brìghde Chaimbeul’s exceptional bagpipe playing earned her international recognition already from her debut album “The Reeling” (2019), which garnered rave reviews from The Guardian, Songlines, and The Quietus, among others. Since then, she has been celebrated with the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award and BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award, and in 2021, she performed for world leaders at the opening ceremony of COP 26. Most recently, Brìghde Chaimbeul released the excellent album “Carry Them With Us” (2023) in collaboration with American star saxophonist Colin Stetson. Brìghde Chaimbeul performed a sold-out concert at ALICE in 2020, and we are honored to invite her back as part of the opening week in our venue on Nørre Allé.
