A feature on piper Ned Wall, extracted from a documentary film called "Feeding the Soul," which is about diversity of cultural heritage in County Wexford

Benoit Tremolieres playing Richard Dwyer's Reel and The Copper Plate

Paddy Glackin and Liam O'Flynn at Gradam Ceoil TG4 2008 (just posted on Youtube a couple weeks ago on Trad TG4 channel): The Garden of Daisies / Speed the Plough

Not piping, but an interview with Paddy Keenan by the Journal of Music - Remembering the Bothy Band
Youtube link

And this is from a year ago, and I hesitated to post it here because it's non-trad.
But here goes nothing... Eric Rigler doing a Braveheart medley at a graveside (wearing the Scottish Highland getup).

Here's some old footage of the McPeake family, recorded at their home in 1964 by Pete Seeger. I believe Francis II and Francis III are on the pipes here.
These were posted on Youtube several years ago, but I couldn't find them anywhere in this thread.

Tell us something.: If you flush your toilet 14 times whilst lilting "The Bucks of Oranmore", an apparition of one of the great pipers of old will appear in the mirror, you will be blessed with good reeds, but cursed with bad bags and bellows.

Tell us something.: I'm back in the uilleann piping world after a ten year hiatus. Uilleann piping chops, here I come!

I'm a smallpipe and Border pipe maker and we'll just see where that leads to.
