David Power: uilleann pipes

Originally from Waterford and now living in New Jersey, David Power is a talented piper who learned from Tommy Kearney and whose playing, his regulator work in particular, shows the influence of Leo Rowsome. On this debut solo CD, which he recorded in one day, Power gives a brilliant demonstration of the technical skills and musical sense which have already earned him a solid reputation. Performing on a Froment C set designed after Seamus Ennis' Coyne set, he performs a great selection of piping classics, not the least of which is "The Fox Chase," of which Power's memorable rendition is perhaps the centerpiece of this inspired album, while his playing of the air "Annaghdown' in F minor is another notable moment. Nicely done.
