Artist Information

Bryan Leong

Although he started learning the piano and violin from a young age, Bryan truly fell in love with music after hearing Tommy Emmanuel's Angelina, which drove him to learn to play the Australian guitarist’s various compositions. He later dove into the world of jazz with the NUS Jazz Band. After chancing upon the classic jig Calliope House, Bryan discovered a genre that spoke to him and decided to broaden his musical horizons to encompass Celtic tunes and playing styles.

Law Chi-Yan

Chi-Yan has been playing Scottish traditional music for a decade, having started with the Great Highland bagpipe but later moving on to Scottish smallpipes and whistles. His repertoire is rooted in the rich piping traditions of Scotland’s west coast as well as Gaelic songs. He also performs regularly with the Singapore Trad Collective.

Pamela Ng

A classically trained pianist, Pamela later developed a strong interest in traditional Irish music. This led her to form Celtic Bards, a duo that has been actively performing instrumental Irish music since its formation in 2013. Pamela plays the whistles, the Irish flute as well as the bodhrán.
