Description

An ensemble of Highland pipes established with one thing in mind to play in a rhythmic, communicative and exciting way. The music is alive and vital, communicating the whole gamut of emotions. The dance music is closely related to its old natural percussive rhythms and the piobaireachd follows the forms of the original song versions from which they originated. Seudan is pronounced Shaytan, which is Gaelic for jewels or treasures. The pipes played are matched copies of a very important museum set made in 1785 and housed in The Inverness Museum. They have been meticulously measured and reproduced and play in concert pitch A 440 Hz. They are made in ebony and mounted in solid silver, by Hamish and Fin Moore. The pipers are Calum MacCrimmon, Angus MacKenzie, Fin Moore and Angus Nicolson, with Allan MacDonald (vocals and small pipes). They are joined on the album by Mac Morin (piano and steps), Donald Hay (percussion), Ross Martin (guitar) and Kathleen MacInnes (vocals). You only have to take a look at the calibre of musicians collaborating together in this Seudan album to know that you will be enthralled, entertained and moved by the music. Seudan take a free spirited approach to their music, harnessing the best of Hebridean and Cape Breton influences and the outcome as you would expect is as fresh as a gust of wind on a Uist croft! It makes compelling listening! - Roddy MacLeod, MBE, The National Piping Centre.
