I have a Website, Lives of the Pipers, with short biographies of selected uilleann pipers active in North America 1850-1950.

I thought to start this thread to announce when I add biographies. I'll be doing so every once in a while.

Newly added:

Shaun O'Nolan (1873-1945) Boston and New York City, entertainer and songwriter
James J. Scanlon (circa 1865-1942) New York City, musician and bandleader

All the best,

Great project Nick,

I would love to see you include Tom Standeven. He was squeezing away at a time when the pipes were in decline in Ireland,
knew so many of the great players and he influenced an awful llot of people with his music, including me.
