An acquired or possibly gene-based taste -- the Irish pipes

More music for you -- the only way to celebrate St. Patrick's day.  This is a video about the Irish pipes (Uilleann pipes) and one of the most famous pipers, Finbar Furey, with views of the west coast of Ireland and a visit with a pipes maker.

And here is my favorite Irish group, from my own hometown of South Bend, Indiana, Kennedy's Kitchen.  This is a promotional video, but it introduces you to the members and gives you a sample of their wonderful music-making.  One afternoon when they were performing at the Carnegie Center in Three Rivers, I did my knees in doing the jig to their great playing.
