Re: A Niel Gow Tune

Interesting but, to my ears, the tone seems to be somewhere between a Uilleann and a normal Border Pipe.
Granted, all my contact with border pipes is youtube based, but still.

Regardless, nice...

Re: Uilleann pipes

This is the Royal Scots Dragoon Guard (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9IoeEx-lmc). But I'm pretty sure its a SSP.

Other than Subtle Piper's link could find any other Uilleann :\
