Beinn Lee are a six-piece band from Uist in the Outer Hebrides.
Formed in 2013, Beinn Lee are rooted in the west coast style of traditional music. The collective inheritance of Gaelic song and west coast pipe music provide a very strong traditional backbone to their music, but the music is infused with contemporary compositions, self-penned tunes, and a mix of songs from Gaelic to pop and country.
The instrumentation of accordion, fiddle, pipes/flute, guitar, piano, drums and vocals provide the band with a sound that has seen them successfully perform across the country for weddings, but increasingly in demand for festivals. 2017 saw Beinn Lee performing at the HebCelt, Eilean Dorcha and Mull festivals and perform as support for Sharon Shannon.
