Since St. Patricks day is approaching, and most of my relatives are from The Republic of Ireland, (not Northern Ireland)I though it would be nice to post some real Irish music that you may not have heard before. I think I'll do it on a regular basis up to St. Patrick's Day.

Michael McGoldrick on Uillean pipes (pronounced ill-un in Irish) and John Joe Kelly on Bodhran (the flat drum, pronounced bar-on in Irish), don't recognize the guitarist. The pipes are called Uillean because that is the Irish word for elbow and the air bag is pumped up by the elbow instead of the mouth as with Scottish pipes. The Uillean, or Irish Pipes, are the most complex of all the bagpipes and hardest to play. This type of music is called Irish Trad, or Traditional. Slainte, Rath de ort!

I guess you'll have to select and drag it up to the Google search bar, I don't know any other way to do it.
