Brian McNamara: uilleann pipes
Benedict Koehler: uilleann pipes
Grainne Hambly: harp
Brian is one of the musical McNamara family from Aughavas in County Leitrim, and has already had a solo album and played on the family recording ?Leitrim?s Hidden treasures?. He has very strong ideas about his music and about how it should be played and recorded. He is also one of the most musical of pipers. On this recording he plays music from all over Ireland, and displays an intimate knowledge of the origins of the tunes, a knowledge which he imparts along with some intriguing nuggets of circumstance. Unusually, there are several piping duets here, where he is joined by his friend Benedict Koehler, and while it is obvious that there are two sets playing, it's very hard to pick out the joins, so perfect is their unison
