Irish Pipering


We haven't brought up the bagpipe on The Inn for a while now. It hasn't been forgotten, although it might sound like it if you heard me play. I am desperately in need of practice; the dose of flu (not a bad title for a tune; something slow and very minor sounding) put a large crimp in the ability to practice. The piper here is Mickey Dunne playing The Highlevel Hornpipe and The Bucks of Oranmore. He's playing the Irish uilleann pipe, which I don't play, so I don't feel quite as guilty about my lack of practice as I would otherwise.
