The Uileann piper is Paddy Keenan, a member of the much discriminated Traveller community, He went to the (now defunct) De La Salle school in Dundalk. He was a few years ahead of me. He was always so nervous that he never looked at the audience.Instrumentation notes: five string bass in Winehouse-Weller; seeing more and more of these, or maybe just starting to notice that I've been seeing them. New standard?
Nice to see uilleann pipes in the Bothy video.
Most of the others started playing music for the dancing kids in Donegal Gaeltacht in the 60s, close to Enya's home.
Seems Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Emmylou were fans.
