Portrait of a Piper

This recording presents seventy minutes of solo uilleann piping featuring two sets of pipes. The ‘concert-pitched’ set of pipes was made in 2001 by Benedict Koehler and David Quinn, in Vermont, USA. The ‘flat’ set is pitched in ‘C’ and was made by Geoff Wooff in 1997. On this recording, I play a chanter pitched in ‘C’ with the Wooff set which was made in 2016 by Benedict Koehler.
