Jimmy has been re- searching the music of the pipers who flourished in the first half of the 19th century, with a particular focus on the celebrated Galway piper Paddy Con- neely, whose music, as notated and (sometimes) published by several different collectors, forms the content of this CD, and whose portrait, painted in 1839 by Frederic William Burton, adorns its cover. Jimmy plays the music on his Colgan set, which he received from Seán Reid.
