Music for the Soul

Regulars will know that I like Celtic music but tonight’s find was pure chance.  I searched YouTube for Friday Evening music and I found Mickey Dunne, the legendary uilleann piper in a video at  the 2007 O’Flaherty Irish Music Retreat in Midlothian, Texas.

Of course, I had never heard of this “legendary” piper but I poked around and found this lovely example of his playing.

The High Level Hornpipe / The Bucks of Oranmore

Watch Mickey’s right wrist for its musical effect.  I never knew this before.

I hope you enjoyed this.
