From the ancient Celtic heartlands of the Welsh border, Keith Wellings is creating, arranging and recording music for the Highland bagpipes.
His music transports listeners to timeless lands of mist and stone, to mystical worlds of runes and rings and through the majestic grace of the Celtic kingdoms.
His slow air playing calms the troubles of the day and the liveliness of his "rock and reel" pieces will stir your spirit to action.
Keith has performed professionally throughout the UK, the west coast of the USA and in Spain. He has recorded 3 albums for LOC Productions, the critically acclaimed "The Piper's Call" in 2009 and "Amazing Grace" in 2010. His latest album is "Facing North".
Keith plays regularly at fairs, festivals, re-enactments, visitor centres and private functions in England, Wales and Scotland.
He learned to play the Great Highland Bagpipe as a teenager and his musical appearances have enraptured audiences in the United States and Europe.
The Great Highland Bagpipe derives from ancient times and developed from a Persian instrument introduced to Britain by the Romans. It is made from ebony, sheepskin and cane. It's nine note scale and drone produces a Celtic sound that is closely linked to Indian and Arabic music ("CIA" theory).
