Product DescriptionVery few musical instruments in the world enjoy so much praise for their beauty, myth and extraordinary sound as the uilleann pipes. Evolving through centuries of war, fostered by the gentry, banned by foreign forces and at stages becoming virtually extinct Pipes are still one of the most amazing pieces of musical machinery ever invented or designed.
