For Maggie

Something completely different- Uilleann pipes(Irish bagpipes) and synth. I wrote this tune over 20 years ago in the style of traditional Irish slow airs. It was recorded way back in 1991 for an album that’s been out of print for over 15 years now. I renamed it for my 6 year old grandaughter as every time she hears it she says “that’s my Papa Kirk”

I've always wondered what your Uilleann pipes music sounded like, since I saw it mentioned in your profile. Keep it coming. I want some more. :)

My Scartaglen CDs are long buried in box in the garage...is that Valencia Harbour? Never the less, damn, that's a great tune, great playing. It almost makes me want a set of pipes again (don't worry, hearing your playing does for my piping desires exactly the same thing that Adagio for Strings does for my desire to write orchestral music...realise I'll never get remotely close to perfection)

THese are all very relaxing.Meditative even. Makes me want to go reconsider my instrumental pieces. I'm listening at work while formatting hard Drives, and a co-worker was interested , so I sent her the link.

thanks! these are just short brainstorms... you are right, the last one sounds like an ending to a track... Maybe that's what it will eventually become, who knows!

Enchanting. There are a bunch of little tricks up your sleeve here, nice note bending and (tongue?) tremolo... skillfully played, I enjoyed letting it unfold around me.

I am the one that spent 70 days backpacking Ireland. One leg was Lake Acoose to Killarney Nat'l Forest. I only came to towns once a week to acquire supplies and go to church. Your music reminds me of the best moments of my trips.

Guest said

reminds me of backpacking from Lake Acoose across MacGillycuddy's Reeks into the Valley of the Eyes terminating in the Black Valley. I accomplished this alone and heard the Banshee in the Black Valley before the magic Killarney National Forest swallowed me.

WOAH! I get entranced by this kind of sound. It reminds me of the sensation I get with the didgeridoo. Monotonal foundation... it evokes a meditative state. Everything surrounding me can be moving rapidly but this sound slows down that internal clock.. ephemeral moments become everlasting... It moves melodically exactly when in needs to, and your pipe performance is just leaves me in awe. Thanks for uploading this amazing tune.

Guest said

Oh wow! Clever stuff. Speaking as a celt, this gets right into the heart. Lucky little Maggie. Very well played too.

Guest said

Oh loving the Celtic vibe, Papa Kirk!

Saved!
