Scots Calum Stewart (born in 1982) is a familiar name to many in Denmark, where he has often played. A virtuoso on the uilleann pipes, Calum Stewart is an esteemed musician and composer in Scotland. In 2018, Calum Stewart won the title of Instrumentalist of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards. His latest album, with the Calum Stewart Quartet, is Tales from the North (2018). Traditional Scots and Irish music are his metier and his piping and flute-playing “has the music flowing as pure as the water in a Highland burn,” as one reviewer has it. Calum Stewart has recorded and performed with several symphony orchestras, among them the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Calum Stewart has toured extensively with Breton guitarist Heikki Bourgault – also in Denmark. In the autumn of 2018, the Calum Stewart Trio tour of Denmark included 12 concerts throughout the country. Many will be glad to see him again, when Calum Stewart returns to Tønder Festival this year. His only Danish festival appearance in 2019.
