if YOU fancy trying the uilleann pipes, head over to St Iberius Church on Saturday where the CEO of Na Píobairí Uilleann, Gay McKeon, will be present with his own set of Leo Rowsome pipes.
Gay is on a mission to convert more musicians to the uilleann pipes and is in Wexford as guest of the recentl-reformed Wexford Pipers Club. The purpose of Saturday's visit is to introduce musicians to the pipes. 'Bain triail aisti,' he says, 'give them a go'. He reckons that once you get over a few basic technical details, the pipes are easy to play as the tin whistle. If you feel like trying the pipes, be at St Iberius Church at 4 p.m.
