Magh Seola - Ger Fahy on Uilleann pipes

Hello Potters and Friends,

I heard this great player, Gerard Fahy, playing this brilliant tune in Galway, Ireland this week.

He wrote it at the age of 14 and since then it has been recorded on all instruments and by all the great players.

So have a listen to Gerard on the Uilleann pipes  (uilleann being the Irish for elbow, because this elbow action is how the bellows are filled).

And the title Magh Seola means the Level Plain - which well describes the landscape around Galway.
