Building on Limerick-born uilleann piper Louise Mulcahy’s extensive research into her female forebears on the instrument, this special collaborative show comprehensively demolishes macho bagpipe stereotypes, with an all-women line-up representing diverse traditions and territories. Also on the Irish side, Mulcahy is joined by Cork native Máire Ní Ghráda, with Glasgow’s Sheila Friel (of Friel Sisters fame) and Londoner Marion McCarthy representing the wider diaspora. From South Uist, Alana MacInnes plays both Highland pipes and smallpipes, while fellow Scot Robyn Ada McKay draws on Cape Breton and Irish as well as home-grown influences. Completing the line-up, Breton-born Enora Morice is an award-winning member of Shotts & Dykehead Caledonia Pipe Band.
