Uilleann Piping star Calum Stewart and his trio are touring Calum’s much-anticipated new album Tales from the North. Inspired by his upbringing in Garmouth in the North of Scotland, the new album celebrates the legends, landscapes, adventures and people that all played an integral part in his childhood.
His first solo album to feature primarily his own compositions, Tales from the North is a true reflection of Calum’s powerful and expressive style of playing. Although Calum is a Scottish musician playing what is usually considered to be an Irish instrument, there is no question that this is an album with strong Scottish influences rooted in the legends of the country’s history.
Calum is in high demand as both a concert and recording artist; with recent work including recording with the London Philharmonic Orchestra at Abbey Road studios for composers Thomas Newman and Howard Shore, as well as collaborations with Nitin Sawhney and recently Scottish singer Julie Fowlis, having been part of her live band for the last three years.
