Clare: The Home of Irish Music

I have read novels detailing the wonderful musical culture of County Clare Ireland. It’s like being there but not really. You see you really need to hear it in person and also feel the atmosphere. This video is very engaging. Blackie O’Connell is a tour master!

  1. Uilleann pipes are one my favorite Irish instruments. Paddy Maloney of the Chieftains plays them too, and he was the first I heard play them when I was introduced to the Chieftains with their first CD.

    Blackie does have a way with introducing his home, and I enjoyed the video clip. (Though I would have loved to hear more of his playing!)
