An evening to showcase the many & varied traditions of the bagpipe from around Europe, featuring three artists, all masters in their respective regional styles: Goran Farkaš (Croatia) plays the Istrian bagpipes and is also an accomplished singer and dancer. Though bagpipes tend to be a male-dominated instrument this has not stopped the four women of Habelas Hainas to create an energetic and fresh yet feminine version of Galician music. Last but not least, award-winning Northumbrian piper and pianist Andy May and his quartet of virtuoso folk musicians playing both traditional and original compositions.

In collaboration with the Second International Bagpipe Conference
