Prydein's driving bagpipe music in their track Emi's Jig can be heard in our Beltane 2009 Holiday Special, Episode SP11.
Originally started in 1995 as the band Whisky Before Breakfast by 6 college friends, Prydein has been playing the Highland Game and Celtic Festival circuit for the better part of a decade in one form or another. The two original members, Aron Garceau (guitar, vocals) and Iain Mac Harg (bagpipes, flute) have been friends the entire time and usually break the band up for months or years at a time when the band gets in the way of that friendship.
Now Prydein is back and it's fully loaded. Aron and Iain have been joined by bassist Andy Smith (Mighty Sam McLain Band, Jazzmosis), drummer Caleb Bronz (Gordon Stone Trio, Mighty Sam McLain Band) and highland piper Willa Davie (that's right, two pipers baby). They went into the studio this past spring to put down on plastic 6 years worth of music that'd been festering inside of their heads. The result was their new album, Loud Pipes (save lives) and It'll knock your socks off. If you're in a hurry and don't want to wait to get it in the mail, you can order it through iTunes.
Prydein have 5 albums available.
