The Campbells of Greepe are one of the great dynasties of Gaelic song. The family’s roots lie in a tiny crofting township on the Isle of Skye, situated off the West Coast of Scotland, where music was the constant accompaniment to everyday life. Pipers and singers who love to dance, it’s no surprise that they are considered the masters of Gaelic mouth music and their songs encompass a whole musical world – pibroch songs, work songs and the songs of their own community.
Amongst the special guests joining three generations of the family are virtuoso American step-dancer Nic Gareiss and award-winning piper Lorne MacDougall.
