Featuring The Northumbrian Small Pipes 4/10/10

The Northumbrian Small Pipes are a facinating variant of the Irish Uileann Pipes—better known as the Scottish Highland or War Pipes—and have a sweet and, well, smaller sound. They come from the north-east corner of England, an area steeped in a blend of traditional Celtic and English folk music. We'll hear some music featuring this instrument on this edition of A Celtic Sojourn.

ABOUT A CELTIC SOJOURN

Each week, host Brian O’Donovan explores traditional and contemporary music from around the Celtic world, connecting emerging artists to their deep musical roots. A native Irishman, O’Donovan’s musical expertise and warm, affable style has become a New England tradition itself, expanding A Celtic Sojourn into CDs, DVDs, television specials, and annual holiday concerts.

“Celtic music is a living tradition. A new generation is pushing its edges in fascinating ways, incorporating jazz, classical and rock, while still keenly aware of its deep roots.” — Brian O’Donovan
