tunebook 48 tunes.

uilleann piper for 10-12 yrs
‘terminal intermediate’
full set concert pitch
and now a flat set in B
verrry mellow
sometimes attend a local whistle/box session

irish flute as well
started as a way to learn tunes, quick etc
but the flute is much more expressive in some ways
ie you can rock it or be very delicate
the pipes fixed volume (sort of) makes it harder to play them ‘soft’

i’m also 53 and have a day job, so no delusions here
has proven itself to be a healthy hobby
and have no intention of growing out of it!
