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.
Originally from Edinburgh, Eddie started playing the pipes when he was at school, and then progressed to study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland from 2009 to 2013.
Over the course of his professional life he has worked with a variety of musicians, bands and theatre projects and has had the opportunity to travel to America and Russia, as well as countless dates throughout Europe.
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.
Eddie 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.
Cave Of Gold was recorded by Scott Wood in his Oak Ridge Studios, Glasgow.
It was a pleasure to work with Eddie and Greentrax is proud to add this fine album to its catalogue of releases.
“Absolutely delighted with it and it’s sounding great. Eddie’s done a great job…”

“Individual expertise and command of mood by the bucketful…”
(John O’ Regan, Living Tradition)
