Mick Coyne
Mick Coyne hails from a great traditional family. His father
Eamon Coyne was from Co Roscommon and played the fiddle with
the famed Liverpool Ceili Band. He has two brothers; Eamon
junior (fiddle) and Terry (flute). Mick started to play music
at the age of 12 years, when his mother Lousie Coyne gave him
his first lesson on the tin whistle. He took a liking to the
instrument and went to further lessons with Patricia Lacey in
the Liverpool Irish Centre. He went on to play the flute and
at 14 years he started to play with the Liverpool Ceili Band.
His first set of uilleann pipes were a Matt Kiernan practice
set, purchased from the late Tommy McCarthy of Co Clare. Tommy
was living in London at the time and gave Mick his first
piping lesson. When Mick moved to Dublin he befriended the
great tight piper Andy Conroy. Andy would visit Mick at his
flat where they would chat about Andy’s time in America and
play tunes. There Andy passed on tight intricate piping tricks
that are the foundation of Mick’s very unique style. He has
lived in Ennis, Co Clare since 1984.
In 1990 Mick won the Oireachtas Uilleann Pipes competition. He
teaches at the Willie Clancy Summer School and has played and
taught throughout Europe and Canada. The Canadian press called
Mick the "musicologist’s wet performance with Ron Kavana and Steve White at the 2001
Edmonton Festival in Canada.
