River Lea is excited to be releasing the debut album by exceptional Skye musician Brighde Chaimbeul (a Scottish Gaelic name pronounced Bree-CHU (as in “church”) Campbell). The Reeling was recorded live without overdubs in the historic East Church in Cromarty, on the Black Isle.

These largely traditional Scottish and Bulgarian tunes were performed by Brighde on the Scottish smallpipes (with the addition of an ancient harmonium found in the church). She was joined on the recording by violinist Aidan O’Rourke from experimental folk trio Lau, who also produced the album, Radie Peat from the Dublin band Lankum on concertina, and the pioneering 82-year-old singer and piper Rona Lightfoot contributing canntaireachd (a phonetic singing tradition used to teach pipe tunes- the word means “chanting” in Gaelic).

Release Date: 18th January 2018
