Formed through an excising musical friendship, Brittany based Calum Stewart and Heikki Bougaultbegan their musical journey together in 2008. Originally from the North of Scotland and brought up with the traditional music of his native Morayshire, Calum Stewart has a developed a distinctive contemporary-traditional voice. Through collaborations with a vast array of musicians from many different genres, Calum has absorbed many different influences on his musical journey: establishing a unique style along his way, the sound of his Wooden Flute & Uillean (Irish) Pipes being fundamental to this.
Coming from a new generation of guitarists, Heikki Bougault 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.
This urge to look beyond borders, pushing the limits, whilst respecting traditions is what brings Calum Stewart and Heikki Bourgault together : With old instruments, a new sound is forged.
“Calum’s mastery of the Wooden Flute & Uilleann Pipes, and Heikki’s mastery of the Guitar, refreshingly infuses new life into an instrumental genre, embodied in this beautifully detailed and balanced sequence of melodies and dance music.” Yann Bertrand, “MUSIQUE BRETONNE”
“A showcase of assertive technique and imaginative instrumental interplay.”
Norman Chalmers, “THE SCOTSMAN”.
