  • Ellen MacPhee - Sad News

    Ellen died on Saturday, the 18th. Several years ago, she taught at the Vermont Bellowspipe School (Cairdeas), and was again involved in the 2020 virtual version. A very fine musician, and very fine person. Many of you may have encountered her at the College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts in Summerside. No doubt an obituary, and tributes, will be forthcoming soon, so I will leave it to others to articulate the enormity of the loss.

    That is shocking news. Ellen was fantastic, both as a musician and person. I had the pleasure of receiving a couple of weeks of smallpipe instruction from her at the Gaelic College years ago. She also helped me with a shoulder injury that was affecting my piping. Hard to believe she's gone. My condolences to her family and friends.
