I wonder how many people took up the pipes as a direct result of watching Davey Spillane playing on the Point Theatre recording? 22 years ago now..


For me, it was hearing Liam O'Flynn with Planxty. I wasn't aware of Mr. Spillane until after taking up the pipes. Generation gap, I suppose.

You know what actually, really got me interested in pipering? It was our very own tommykleen himself. Blame him. I'm sure he does already. :wink:

Whatever form the initial spark of interest may be is largely irrelevant. Whether it's Spillane or Ennis, it's where you go from there that is important.. therapy in quite a few cases :)

...mea culpa-ble.

For many North American pipers (inc. me) who got hooked in the mid-70s, the vector was the Nonesuch release of "Irish Pipe Music" by Finbar/Eddie Furey.
