Cätlin Mägi is a leading figure in Estonian piping. A champion of the torupill, the Estonian bagpipe, she is a charismatic teacher, researcher, performer and recording artist.
Cätlin is a leading figure in the Estonian piping revival. Having first discovered the Estonian torupill as a teenager, Cätlin is now a full time professional musician and teacher at the Viljandi Culture Academy. She is also in the know of the musical thinking that has been passed on from generation to generation and has learned, on the basis of archive recordings, from the musicians who themselves learned their tunes traditionally – by ear – adding their own idiosyncratic nuances, variety and improvisational elements.
Cätlin Mägi has played at many of the festivals in Estonia and abroad expecially bagpipe festivals like Piping Live in Glasgow and Blowout Festival in England.
