Formed through an existing musical friendship and rooted in their respective traditions, Calum Stewart & Heikki Bourgault explore an interceltic link; marrying old melodies together with new in an inspiring, assertive and dynamic interplay.
A leading Uilleann Piper & Flautist, Calum Stewart's powerful and lyrical playing style is rooted in the traditional music of his native northern Scotland. Calum has developed a distinct voice, through his collaborations within the Irish, Breton and Scandinavian traditions.
Coming from a new generation of guitarists, Heikki Bourgault embraces the strong tradition of Breton musicians, whilst pushing the boundaries of the open tuned guitar. His knowledge of Fest Noz dance, both as dancer and musician, nourishes his composition in the Breton style, whilst giving him a solid base to explore new ground.
Calum Stewart & Heikki Bourgault is a duo which captures two of today's leading instrumentalists in full flight: Driving Celtic Roots.
