Nuallan

Cape Breton

  • Online:

Comprised of four Cape Breton pipers – Paul K. MacNeil, Keith MacDonald, Rankin MacInnis, Kenneth MacKenzie and Kevin Dugas – and formed by the Gaelic College, Nuallan seeks to represent, promote and explore the style of piping brought by Highland Gaels and developed over the past two hundred years here in Cape Breton Island. This rich style of playing had a strong focus on the rhythm and musicality of the music and an inherent link with the song and dance traditions of the Gaelic culture. Nuallan’s members are well-known individually for their rhythmic, musical playing and bringing them together to celebrate the importance of these connections was a natural fit.

The Gaelic word Nuallan itself has two meanings; the vibrant droning sound of the Highland bagpipes and the constant murmuring sound of the ocean which is a vital element of our lives here in Cape Breton as well as our ancestors’ in the Highlands of Scotland. That vibrant and unmistakeable sound of Nuallan’s pipes along with piano, percussion and dancing will be sure to provide an exciting, unique and unforgettable sound you won’t want to miss.
