David Spillane Playing The Uilleann Pipes

To uplift your soul today!  It's interesting to watch how he plays the instrument and what sounds come out.  I don't know why but I had always imagined that one would have to blow to get the music.  Ling Ling really liked this one.  As soon as I started playing it she jumped up on the chair next to mine and stared into the computer screen mesmerized!  Thanks to Wild Irish Rose and her post Feeding the instrument addiction.


  1. This is truly beautiful. I have an album entitled "Revival in Belfast" which starts out with the plaintive wail of Uilleann pipes. As soon as this video started, it brought back many good memories associated with enjoying that album with good friends.

  2. Glad to hear it. You might want to check out her Wild Irish Rose website.

  3. Davey Spillane also makes his own pipes, FYI.

    Thanks very much for the nod and link, I'll add ya to my blogroll.
