INSTRUMENT SAMPLES

I play two types of bagpipes; the Scottish Highland bagpipes and the Irish Uilleann (pronounced “Ih-len”) pipes. Both instruments may sound similar, but they are very different when heard in person. The Highland bagpipes are very boisterous and best suited for outdoor or very large interior venues, such as a church or grand hall. The Uilleann pipes are a much quieter instrument, and is best suited for smaller venues, but can be featured on stage or amplified for a larger setting.

Highland Bagpipes • “Glasgow City Police”




Irish Uilleann Pipes • “The Kesh Jig”
