Perhaps it’s that small bit of Irish blood in me, or simply that all my memories of live bagpipes are very pleasant ones, but good Irish music always brings good cheer. Irish pipe band Ceol na Gael (“music of the Gaels”) from Charlotte, NC is especially skilled at it, and they continue to grow in fame and repertoire.
One of the band members, Wayne, is a friend and co-worker: a talented programmer and piper. Check them out at their web site or Facebook page. And if you’re a Carolinian in need of a good Irish fix, contact them.
