Traditional Irish pipe music
Finbar Furey is the youngest member of a very small body of musicians who are masters of the Irish pipes, a complex instrument that has developed over the centuries into the most sophisticated form of bagpipes.
The Irish pipes — also called union pipes or uillean (shoulder) pipes — are mouth blown [sic] and have three sound sources: a chanter plays the tune and a set of drones play continuous notes, but unlike other pipes, the Irish pipes have a set of 'regulators' which will play harmony. Finbar frequently uses these percussively when he plays dance tunes.
On his previous record with his brother Eddie, Finbar established that he was a virtuoso instrumentalist. On this solo record he plays traditional tunes and tunes of his own composition on the Irish pipes and on a variety of whistles.
