Some Piping for the Weekend

The first set has Ian Lowther playing a fine set on the Northumbrian small pipe, beginning and ending with "The Keel Row".

And this is Jerry O'Sullivan giving us some jigs on the uillean pipe. There is some lovely use of the regulators in the second half.

Both clips are of cauld wind pipes this week since the annual Piper's Gathering is coming up next weekend in Vermont. Alas, the budget doesn't run to any cross-country events for me. But if you happen to be in the area it would be a weekend well-spent. Details here.
