The pandemic has kept releases that were due to launch two years ago on the shelf. Let's put it that way.Maybe you're in the know on something... I would buy it wherever it's released, I just figured NPU has the resources to make it happen. It was a long time between the Robbie Hannan cd in the series & Caoimhin's. I've heard they are working on a T. Reck collection, but I had some higher hopes for the "Master Pipers" series. Not to put them down, they do great work, I'm just always looking forward to the new releases as it's probably my main source for learning.
CDs will start coming again again I suppose, a degree of normality seems to be returning. Tommy Reck's centenary is coming up, things will happen.
Concerts are starting again too: I have my tickets for a series of concerts of younger musicians with older ones that inspired them, which was cut short two years ago when lockdowns set in. Paraic Keane and Sean McKiernan are on in a few weeks. Before things shut I saw Colm Broderick and Mick O Brien tackling mostly LOF's repertoire.
