Wow, that's awesome! I LOVE uilleann pipes. We have a couple of excellent uilleann pipers at one of the sessions I regularly attend. I don't know anyone named Nick Brown, whereabouts in Ontario is he? I'm in Kingston area. You'd be surprised how many traditional players there are in Ontario! There is at least one session, often more, in most big cities, and scattered throughout the countryside you can find them too. There are also some excellent workshops and schools that happen in various places across Ontario. I did a workshop with Liz Carroll not too long ago, and the Kane sisters are teaching a few hours west of me this summer. Anyways. Nice to find you!
Hey, I play the uilleann pipes. :) These days I'm usually in pub sessions around Glasgow and elsewhere in Scotland and England, as I do a lot of wandering about.
You say you're in Eastern Ontario? Do you know a piper called Nick Brown? He's an old pal of mine. Not sure how often he's attending sessions in the last few years, as he's been playing flat sets more than concert pitch ones. But you never know -- not that many trad players in Ontario. :)
Hi there, I saw your user name and figured you MUST be a musician. I play Irish fiddle at a couple pub sessions in my part of the world (eastern Ontario). What instrument(s) do you play? Nice to find you!
