VARIOUS: A NEW DAWN - UILLEANN PIPING, ANOTHER GENERATION
Those familiar with the 1978 Mulligan LP "The Piper's Rock," which introduced pipers like Davy Spillane, Robbie Hannan, Gabriel McKeon, Maire Ni Ghrada, etc. when they were still in their teens, will be happy to hear that P.J. Curtis (together with Gabriel McKeon) has come up with an updated version. The brilliant young pipers on this anthology are: Mikie Smyth, Darragh Murphy, Louise Mulcahy, Eliot Grasso (from Baltimore), Ciaran O'Briain, and Conor McKeon. The playing, unaccompanied throughout, is of the highest caliber, and the diversity of styles and timbres is sure to keep the listener's attention. An outstanding CD for lovers of Irish piping.
