Played warpipes, whistle, flute, recorder for varying numbers of years. Bought new practice uilleann set in 1973 and antique full set in 1976, attended Willie Clancy Summer School in 1977, kept struggling to play for some time after and eventually quit playing pipes because there were so many other things I wanted to play, and at that time I couldn’t find many others to play with. Have been concentrating on tenor banjo & cello banjo for 6 years now, and jamming every chance I get. Am currently in West Virginia, USA; grew up in Colorado.
