Angus MacKenzie (pipes/whistle) is a native Gaelic speaker from the musically rich area of Mabou. His father emigrated from South Uist in the Western Isles to Canada, while his mother’s people are descended from the early settlers know as the Mabou Pioneers, who left from Lochaber. Angus came to Scotland to study at Sabhal Mor Ostaig, the Gaelic College on the Isle of Skye where he still lives today. The eldest in a musical family, Angus and his fiddle-playing sibling Kenneth released a much-anticipated album, Pìob is Fidheall. The album explores the long and deep connection the pipes and fiddle have within the Scottish tradition. Angus is a member of “The Gaelic Super Group” Dàimh (pronounced dive) based in the West Highlands of Scotland.
