Since winning the BBC Radio Young Folk Award in 2016, Skye piper Brighde Chaimbeul has captured the attention of audiences across the country with her fresh and versatile sound. 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 Bulgarian, Cape Breton and Irish.

Recent highlights include appearances at major festivals including Cambridge Folk Festival, Celtic Connections and Fairport's Cropredy Convention, as well as featuring on BBC Alba/TG4 series Port and Seirm.
Brighde most often appears with guitarist Innes White as well as the recently formed duo with piper Ross Ainslie, playing smallpipes in C made by Fin Moore.
