    I do!
    I love them! I like pipes!
    I am fond of music and of folk music as well!
    Oggi,who are your favourites?

    As for me, I love Irish and Scottish traditional music.
    Mostly Chieftains,
    a LOT of Clannad and Dubliners
    my icons are Liam O'Flynn and Sharon Shannon,
    also Shaun Davey (he writes whole symphonies for ullian-pipes)
    Capercallie and Anuna - they amuse me so much!
    I simply love Irish songs - their music is incredeable!
    And pipes! lots of pipes together!

    My absolutelly favourite is English Renaissance music.
    --------
    that's the main names excluding lots of classics LOL
    Я так думаю.

    Leof -

    try getting hold of something by Macumba: pipes, pipes, more pipes, and lots of great percussion - guaranteed to wake you up quickly, even on a cold monday morning

    For Uilleann pipes, try Davy Spillane, he's stunning.

    As for Irish music, I'm mainly into the dance music (or at least, the "dance-able" music ), so that's more often fiddles, whistles, and harmonica.....

    BabaYaga of course I know Spillane! I know two or three his albums as well. He is perfect, but for me he goes too far of tradition - you know his maner - he often plays in modern rhythmes. He plays with much of electronical music. Although some of his music is very PENETRATING - I mean when it's only pipes and nothing more in the backsound.
    Did you see Riverdance Show (M. Flatley/Bill Whelan and team) - I love these music. And I love the music he played there.

    Tell,did you ever hear Carlos Nunez? His from Spain and plays incrediable Catalonian and Galicien pipe-tunes!

    And thank you for advice - I shall try to hear Macumba.
    ---------
    Macumba - I firstly wondered why it has so strange name - so they are Mac Umba in real - I tryed them through Amazon - the only what makes me sorry is the bad quality of samples. I always noted that pipes sound with way more effect when they are played alive. None of CD's I've ever heart can reflect them with original sound actually - the feeling when your chest is shaked by the pipes-choir and everything surround you is beating with the rhythm.
    And I think Mac Umba sounds great. At least their pipes.
    But again I feel I'm more acustomed to classical pipe-music - long tunes and reels but played old way.
    Я так думаю.

    Pipes, Irish and Scottish music!

    Hello Leof!

    I like Chieftains very much, but do only occationally listen to them. At home I have 60-70 LPs with pipe music with bands, and with solo pipers. In comparison, I do only have 3 LPs with the Russian Balalaika, and a few with the Norwegian Hardanger Fiddle. To know what this is like, pls visit this page: http://www.HFAA.org/ The American page for the Hardanger Fiddle. I like music, and I have been to Scotland to listen to pipe music there. I do also like Tyrolian and Bavarian music, - music from the German language areas in Europe. When it comes to Scottish Pipe Music I do not have any special favourite, as I started this interest in the 70s, had a break, and continued again in 1997. Visit our band in Oslo:
