Her debut album, The Reeling, has had an extraordinary response since its launch at a sold out Celtic Connections show in 2019. It was named as Folk Album Of The Month by The Guardian, given five star reviews in both Roots and Songlines, lavished with praise by BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction and listed as one of The Quietus’ Albums Of The Year So Far.

The Reeling was voted one of the 20 Scottish Albums Of The Year by the SAY Awards (out of 293 submissions) and secured Brìghde a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nomination. Working closely with Aidan O’Rourke (from experimental folk trio Lau, and who also produced The Reeling), Brìghde has devised a completely new way of arranging for pipe music that emphasises the rich textural drones of the smallpipes; the constancy of sound that creates a trance-like quality in the tunes.
