Beinn Lee



Headlining at EDF 2024, this band needs no introduction to everyone in Uist! Hailing from across different islands in Uist, Beinn Lee formed in 2013 and are rooted in the west coast style of traditional music. The collective inheritance of Gaelic song and west coast pipe music of Micheal Steele, Pàdruig Morrison, Mairi Therese Gilfedder, James Stewart, Anna Black, and Seoras Lewis provide a very strong Gaelic traditional backbone to their music. The band have played at festivals across Scotland and Europe and we are extra delighted to have them back again on home soil for this year’s EDF, still buzzing from the show that they put on at last year’s festival.


Described by renowned piper Fred Morrison as “a breath of fresh air”: “the feel of the Uist music runs beautifully throughout the album and the sensitive vocals and top drawer musicianship add up to one of the most exciting musical prospects I have heard in a long time.”
