Late 2015, Jason Briscoe — a close friend & bagpiper — and I were sitting in a London restaurant, alongside a few cups of vino of course, and began sketching out an idea for a singular source of progressive bagpipe music.
We wanted it to be a place which provided a style of bagpipe music the next generation is keen to listen to — unique, unconventional, bold and brave. We know the talent is out there, as is the music.
There is no revenue stream for us – purely a passion project to inspire a younger generation and engage a wider audience. We do however recognise the hard work our artists put into advancing their craft and have enabled listeners with the ability to toss a few bucks directly to the musician’s bank account.
