Show 018 – The Sin of Piping (2018-05-22)

posted in: Past Shows

Put in the earplugs and hide the cats! Grab your sporran and a mouthful of haggis, because this is a show that features bagpipes of all types. From the veuze and biniou of Brittany, the gaita of Galicia, the great highland bagpipe of Scotland, the Northumbrian pipes, and Ireland’s uilleann pipes, we cover them in this show. The musical breadth and virtuosity required to play these finicky instruments is evident in every track we’ve chosen.Since a two-hour-long, solid wall of bagpipes is a little much, we do intersperse with some tasty tracks that have no pipes at all…or at least minimal pipes.This week’s artists include the piping greats, Paddy Keenan, Seamus Ennis, and Leo Rowsome, along with Maire Ni Ghrada, Susana Seivane, Cillian Vallely, and The Friel Sisters. We’ve got a couple of new material from Adam Agee & John Sousa, Niamh Dunne, and FullSet.
