  • Description

    Acclaimed Uilleann piper and flautist Calum Stewart has announced his highly anticipated new album True North. A testament to the Speyside native's exceptional talent and strong connection to his heritage in the north of Scotland, the record intertwines traditional Celtic influences with self-penned, heartfelt compositions, delivering an authentic musical experience which is sure to resonate with audiences worldwide.

    True North brings together a trio of masterful musicians which Calum leads, showcasing his unrivalled skill on the Uilleann pipes and wooden flute. He is joined by Sylvain Quere on the bouzouki and Yann Le Bozec on the double bass, whose combined musical voices and styles create an enchanting and evocative sound.

    Drawing inspiration from the north of Scotland, its music, legends, people and landscapes, True North follows the theme of Calum's previous album, Tales from the North (2017). His latest body of work and fourth studio album continues to breathe life into the stories and places close to his heart, while also incorporating new versions of previously recorded pieces, reimagined through years of live performance.
