Pádraig McGovern – Uilleann Pipes Workshop


10.30 am – 12.30pm and 1.30 – 3.30pm

In Kilbroney Integrated Primary School

Pádraig is a native of Ballymagovern on the Cavan-Leitrim border, and his music is laced with the influences of both counties.

He has inherited a rich repertoire of tunes resurrected from the rarer manuscripts of Grier and Sutherland.

His solo playing, and duetting with box player Peter Carberry, features many of these lovely tunes. As a piper, Pádraig is one of the finest of this, or any, generation. His consummate control of the chanter, and highly imaginative and delicate use of regulators, combine to mesmerising effect.

In great demand as a tutor at Summer Schools and festivals both at home and abroad, Pádraig has, to our delight, found time to share his skills with us at Fiddler’s Green.
