Liam seemed to play the regs a lot more in them days


Still less than he did when a teenager [clip taken down to conserve bandwith] :P

I didn’t expect that from Mr. O’Flynn @46.42! :really:

Loved the clip, thank you for posting.

I have heard it said he was removed from stage during a US tour around that time for that introduction.

Some people have such dirty minds, he's talking about the four legged variety of course.

Regarding this footage. I obtained it through a very co-incidental, non-piping, connection that I made on a trip to the US once.
I've no idea about what equipment was used to record, but the image wasn't great on what I received.
At some point I might take this to a professional, rather than me just using a home vhs / pc to do a digital transfer.....

Is that perhaps a reflection of his time studying under Leo Rowsome? The regulator work in that clip sounds very Rowsome-esk to me, at least like the records of Leo Rowsome that I have.

Thanks for posting Malcolm. Liam was only, what, 25 years old when this was recorded. When did he start learning to play the pipes? By the way I still have the Wooff C chanter and it is still going strong with a reed Geoff made for it around 16 years ago

Thanks for posting this Maclolm. Liam did a concert at the Washington Square Church during that same visit to the US in 1971. There is a decent recording of that doing the rounds. Pretty much the same sets of tunes.

If you listen carefully, you'll notice that he calls it "An *phuis* fhliuch", which does indeed refer to the four-legged variety. I wonder was this intentional and, if so, was it on the advice of a lawyer or the parish priest?
