The band Pipedown was formed in 1998, when it won the Danny Kyle Open Stage Award at Glasgow's 2001 Celtic Connections festival.
Drawing on influences from Scottish and Irish traditions, together with Celtic music worldwide, the result has been a powerful and distinctive sound, rich in melody and dynamics.
Lee Moore (bagpipes, Scottish smallpipes, whistles), from Co Tyrone in Northern Ireland, has been playing since the age of eight. Axel Campbell (mandolin, mandola), from the Isle of Harris in the Western Isles, has played guitar, bass and mandolin in Edinburgh bands since settling there. Steve Reid (guitar), from Dunfermline in Fife, was previously guitarist with New Celeste, a rock and jazz-influenced Celtic band from Scotland, with whom he recorded two albums. Stevie Fivey (percussion) is from Denny, near Falkirk.
