5.0 out of 5 stars Back to his roots, 1 April 2008

This review is from: Fine Art of Piping (Audio CD)
Liam O'Flynn is of course best known for his contribution to Planxty — possibly the most influential folk group of all time.

Here, though, he pays tribute to his mentors, who included three of the greatest pipers of the 20th century: Leo Rowsome, Séamus Ennis and Willie Clancy. All the pieces are pipes solos, pure and simple: some played on a concert set, and some on the treasured flat set he inherited from Séamus.

The jewel of the album for me is Willie Clancy's version of the wonderful seven-part jig "The Gold Ring". Liam has also recorded this with other musicians on The Piper's Call, but I prefer the uncluttered version found here.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fine Art of Piping (Audio CD)
Liam O'Flynn here uses both his own D set and the flat Ennis set to great effect.
Well worth the money.
