Some Piping for the Weekend

Jarlath Henderson on uilleann pipes and Andy May playing Northumbrian pipes. The introduction is almost 3 minutes long but if you last you'll hear some breathtaking piping. I don't know the second tune but the first is Sí beag, sí mor. You've never heard it played like this.

My friend-via-email Maria tells me that the second hornpipe is called The Independent. Thanks, Maria. And apologies for the tardy acknowledgement.

And some of you may have noticed that I got the name of the first tune wrong the first time around. It's not the King of Laois at all. It is, in fact, Sí beag, sí mor. I knew that. Lapsus mentis.
