Breasclete Hall, Lewis

Wednesday, 17th July, 8pm

Beinn Lee

Beinn Lee are a six-piece band from Uist in the Outer Hebrides.

Formed in 2013, the band are rooted in the west coast style of traditional music. The collective inheritance of Gaelic song and west coast pipe music provide a very strong traditional backbone to their music, but their music of contemporary and self-penned tunes and songs are infused with diverse modern influences.

The instrumentation of accordion, fiddle, pipes/flute, guitar, piano, drums and vocals provide the band with a sound that has seen them successfully perform across the country for weddings, but increasingly in demand for festivals.

Described by renowned piper Fred Morrison as a breath of fresh air: the feel of the Uist music runs beautifully throughout the album and the sensitive vocals and top drawer musicianship add up to one of the most exciting musical prospects I have heard in a long time.
