The Uilleann Pipes is an instrument that has been described as "ridiculously overdeveloped." Be that as it may, there are few instruments on this earth that will make the blood boil more quickly. To get us going, here is none other than Séamus Ennis himself, and then a program from TG4 which explains the instrument in detail. I might just say that I was even more deeply touched by the expression on this Irishman's face. A true Irish face expressing true Irish emotions. And the movements of his hands. Have we lost all of that forever? I fear that we may. This is horror of our times. We are all becoming bastardized Yanks. I used to fear that we were becoming too Englishised - but the fact is that a true Englishman is becoming as rare as a true Gael.
