Màiri & Brìghde Chaimbeul

 

Harper Màiri & piper Brìghde Chaimbeul are musical sisters and native Gaelic speakers from the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Màiri, described by Folk Radio UK as “astonishing”, is known for her versatile sound, which combines deep roots in Gaelic tradition with a distinctive improvising voice and honed classical technique. Awarded a scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston, a prestigious American Roots Award, nominated for BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award and finalist in the BBC Young Traditional & Jazz Musicians of the Year.

Brìghde, BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award 2016, has been described by Tim Chipping, Roots Magazine, as an “exceptional musician”. With a style rooted in her indigenous language and culture, she draws inspiration from a variety of piping traditions such as Bulgarian, Cape Breton and Irish.

Is deirfiúracha ceolmhara agus cainteoirí dúchasacha Gàidhlige iad an cruitire Màiri agus an píobaire Brìghde Chaimbeul as an Eilean Sgitheanach in Albain. Rinneadh cur síos ar Màiri ar Folk Radio UK mar ‘astonishing’, agus tá cáil uirthi as a fuaim ildánach, a nascann fréamhacha doimhne thraidisiún na nGael le glór seiftiúil ar leith agus teicníc chlasaiceach shlachtmhar. Bronnadh scoláireacht uirthi do Choláiste Ceoil Berklee in Boston, Gradam Ceoil Meiriceánach ar an Seanstíl, ainmníodh í do Ghradam Ceol Tíre Óg BBC Radio 2 agus bhí sí ina hiomaitheoir sa bhabhta ceannais de Cheoltóirí Óga Traidisiúnta agus Snagcheoil na Bliana de chuid BBC.

 

Rinne Tim Chipping, Roots Magazine, cur síos ar Brìghde Chaimbeul mar ‘ceoltóir eisceachtúil’. Le stíl atá fréamhaithe ina teanga agus cultúr dúchais, tarraingíonn sí ionspioráid ó thraidisiúin éagsúla píobaireachta, mar an Bhulgáir, Oileán Cheap Bhreatainn agus Éire.
