Join us for a free lecture  about the uilleann (Irish) pipes by Caoimhin O Fearghail (Ireland) and Rob Brown (Newfoundland).  This talk will provide an overview of the instrument, its various parts and how they are played, some influential pipers (present and past), pipe-making and the role of Na Piobairi Uilleann (the piper's club) based in Dublin over the past 4 decades.  The talk will be supplemented by some playing of dance tunes and airs.
