David Power

David Power is one of the world’s most esteemed performers on the uilleann pipes, an instrument unique to Ireland and among the most challenging to play.

The sound of the pipes typically evokes a multiplicity of emotions: sadness, joy, remorse, historical memory and more. Power’s abundant talent and technical prowess kindles all of these within a solid and sensitive musicality that is rarely heard.  Along with his exquisite ability in interpreting the traditional canon, David makes exciting forays into classical and experimental forms, introducing the instrument into musical territory where no piper has gone before.
