Piping concert at The Crane

"SOME OF Ireland’s leading uilleann pipers are coming to The Crane Bar, Sea Road, to play a fundraising concert this Saturday at 6.30pm.

The concert will raise funds for Na PiobairiUilleann (NPU - The Society of Uilleann Pipers) to train new pipe makers to ensure the craft is not lost in Ireland.

Performing on the night is Sean McKiernan, the 2010 TG4 Traditional Musician of the Year. Sean was born and reared into an Irish speaking family in Boston but has lived in Ireland since 1965. The legendary Clare piper Willie Clancy was a friend and mentor and Sean plays the Taylor set of pipes once owned by the 19th century musician Patsy Touhey."
