One of Celtic Colours’ most endearing concerts each year is the Pipers’ Ceilidh. This year’s concert takes a long look back at the tradition behind the pipes, and how that tradition is being studied, absorbed and brought into the future. Seudan features four vibrant young Highland bagpipers, anchored by the traditional piper and Gaelic singer Allan MacDonald, who comes from a well-revered piping family. They offer lively pipe music, rooted in the step dancing traditions long lost to Scotland, but that continue to this day on Cape Breton. Nuallan, a group of local pipers formed by Colaisde Na Gàidhlig, have dedicated themselves to representing, promoting and exploring the dance style of piping brought from Scotland by Highland Gaels and developed here over the past two hundred years. In recognition of the ties between the piping traditions of Scotland and Cape Breton Island, pipes made by celebrated craftsman Hamish Moore will be presented to the Gaelic College during this concert.
