The Pipes, The Pipes is a homage to the singular magic of the Irish Uilleann Pipes. At the heart of this live experience is the playing of a trio of exceptional pipers, Leonard Barry, Maitiú Ó Casaide and John Tuohy. Visual artists Lionel Palun and Donal Dineen respond to the mesmerising soundwaves they create by conjuring a magical picture show, unique to every performance. Commissioned by The Dock, Carrick-on-Shannon for its 10th anniversary programme, The Pipes, The Pipes premiered at The Dock in January 2015 and went on to perform sellout shows in Dublin and Paris to critical audience acclaim, featuring as one of St. Patrick’s Festival Dublin highlights on RTÉ. Produced by Siobhán O’Malley in association with The Dock. This tour is funded by Arts councils of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
“...An intense, high-energy blast of ensemble piping and a visual adventure that involves exploration,
experimentation and risk-taking” -Journal Of Music 2015
