Art of Uilleann Piping 3 DVD
85 Minute Higher Intermediate Guide to Uilleann Piping in Multi-Region DVD Format
Building on the technique and tunes from volumes 1 and 2, Gay McKeon and Nollaig MacCárthaigh focus on broadening the range of dance tunes – mazurkas, polkas, set dances, slip jigs, as well as the by now familiar double jigs and reels – that make up the piper’s repertoire. In each section there is some new technique taught and in this Volume tunes are taught in pairs, expanding greatly the store of music acquired by the learner. A major feature of this third volume is the very comprehensive introduction to regulator playing, bringing a whole new dimension to the learner’s piping. The accompanying CD has been included to help the learner become familiar with the tunes before turning to the video, and as before there is a booklet containing notation of all the tunes played.
