Thanks for the clinic today Steve. Very good info for many listeners to get a bit of a primer.

There's a young brother/sister duo from my town who just did a small tour through your area there. They're real up and comers and sound great. I don't think that they're on the LiveIreland music rotation yet. How can I submit their info for consideration?

Hi! You play pipes well. One of my friend organized meeting or session of Moscow Uilleann Pipers. When Paddy Keenan was in Moscow my friend and Paddy decide to make this organization. It is like branch. :)

Good Luck!
