Eddie Seaman plays the Highland bagpipe and whistle. He is accompanied on six tracks by the very talented multi-instrumentalist Aaron Jones, who plays bouzouki and double bass on the album. Eddie is joined on the Uamh an Oir (Cave of Gold) track by the very fine Gaelic singer Maeve Mackinnon for this wonderful song.
Eddie is a highly rated, top class bagpiper, teacher and composer, both in the piping world and the Scottish music scene in general. His piping and whistle skills are amply demonstrated on this outstanding debut solo album.
He was a member of the group Barluath, nominated for Folk Band Of The Year at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards in 2016, and was involved in two albums with the band. He was in a duo collaboration with guitarist and singer Luc McNally, which led to the release of two albums.
Although now resident in Glasgow, Eddie coaches the Preston Lodge High School Novice Pipe Band in East Lothian, who were nominated for Pipe Band Of The Year at the 2019 Scots Trad Music Awards. He is widely in demand as both a tutor and performer.
Eddie attended the mastering of the album then immediately flew off on a trip to India through the Edinburgh Military Tattoo on behalf of British High Commission. He is now working on promotion of the album. Ian Green was knocked out by Cave Of Gold when he first heard the final master before it went off to the factory.

In 2003 Greentrax Recordings released the Hamish Henderson Tribute Album - A’ The Bairns O Adam. The album was produced by Dr Fred Freeman and comprised 16 tracks of songs and poems, all written by Hamish Henderson - poet, singer-songwriter, folklorist and socialist. It received wide critical acclaim and work began almost immediately on this Tribute volume 2, with most of the songs specially recorded.
The principal singers are Fiona Hunter (of Malinky), John Morran (of Deaf Shepherd) and young singer Cameron Nixon. Musicians include Marc Duff (whistles), Frank MacLaughlin (guitar), Euan MacLaughlin (fiddle, banjo) and Angus Lyon (accordion, keyboards). The singing throughout is stunning, with sensitive instrumental backing.
