Highlighting concerts at Celtic Connections 2024 featuring bagpipes or piping-related music.
The Celtic Connection website says about the concert: “South Uist’s Alana MacInnes joins Armagh’s Aoife Smyth alongside Colonsay’s Caitlin McNeill for an evening of piping and song. The trio celebrate their respective roots of Ireland and Scotland on Border pipes, Highland pipes, uilleann pipes and a sprinkling of guitar.
“ELÍR was formed in Glasgow’s vibrant and eclectic music scene in 2019. Featuring Niamh MacKaveney (vocals & fiddle), Charlie Stewart (fiddle) and Calum McIlroy (guitar), the trio have taken traditional songs from Scotland and Ireland and merged them with different musical styles to produce a unique sound.”
