Sunday In Leith / Bio

"Sunday in Leith" is a trans-Atlantic Celtic music project started by two Highland pipers in the UK and US with a desire to expand beyond the boundaries of traditional pipe band and 'traditional' folk music. The project fuses a world and Indie rock/pop influences while paying deep respect to the traditions of Celtic music. Sunday In Leith is currently developing and fielding experimental demos ranging from the traditional to original songs with strong contemporary Celtic and world influences. We hope you'll have a listen and come along for the ride with us!
