Fanatical and groovy bagpipe music

Many bagpipe traditions in the world has in recent decades been the subject of a revival, such as the Swedish-Nordic tradition in the early 80’s, when they started to build bagpipes again, and took up the millennial Nordic tradition to play the bagpipes. Elisabeth Vatn is among the few performers who continues the Scandinavian bagpipe tradition. Piper on the Roof is singing and sensual, temperamental, intense and excited, vibrant, fanatical and groovy bagpipe music!

A long musical journey

Elisabeth Vatn started playing the bagpipes – Guida – during a stay in Macedonia in 1993, but this was before she discovered that there actually was a Scandinavian – Swedish variant. It was the beginning of a long musical journey, geographically and aesthetically, as a performer and in the perspective of working in the field of ethnomusicology. As a musician, she works across various stylistic boundaries, from classical music, improvised and rhythmic music, folk and world music, and has many CD releases behind the band Tiger Lily, ChateauNeuf Spelemannslag, Harnihomba and duo-piano recording of Olivier Messiaen’s work Visions de L’Amen.
