Colm is a multiple All-Ireland champion piper and was selected by Na Píobairí Uilleann as the inheritor of Liam Ó Floinn’s pipes, on Liam’s death in 2018. Having recently been awarded the Gold medal at the Seán O’Riada Bonn Oir competition in Baile Mhuirne, Co. Cork, Colm was invited to a private reception in Áras an Uachtaráin hosted by the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins. While here Colm performed a private concert for the president.
Colm will teach a tune or two, primarily aimed at uilleann pipers, but whistle and flute players are more than welcome. Colm is also happy to talk about the incredible Rowsome pipes during this workshop. All skill levels are encouraged to take part, although the workshop will be primarily aimed at students who have some proficiency playing tunes already.
