“Às a´ Phìob” is Gaelic and means “Out of the pipes”The trio, consisting of Clemens Bieger (Guitar, Bouzouki), Michael Klevenhaus (voice) and Thomas Zoeller (Scottish bagpipes), plays music of the Highlands and Western Islands of Scotland. The songs are all presented in Scottish Gaelic. The repertoire includes puirt-a-beul (mouth music), waulking songs and Pibroch.
The group tries to rebuild a natural connection between the nowadays-different Pibroch song and pipe versions, taking their inspiration from people like Allan MacDonald and Margaret Stewart. The result is a very subtle and sympathetic interpretation of songs from the Highlands.
The newly founded band has enjoyed much encouragement from the public in Germany with serveral sold out concerts during September 2003. The paricipation of Allan MacDonald himself during two concerts in June 2003 also contributed to the band's reputation. continue
