Subject: RE: Whitby 2012
I first met Simon and family in Sidmouth in 2011. I think their playing is excellent and can see them being engaged at festivals all over in the foreseeable future. As someone who has been listening to uilleann piping for over 50 years and who played the pipes for 11 years, I can say that Simon's playing is truly representative of the great traveller piping tradition of the Dorans, Cash's et al. As we say over here "To hell with the begrudgers". I wish Simon and family all the very best for the future.
