"Leargas" More Power to your Elbow (Uilleann Pipes)

Here is a fascinating documentary, divided into two parts, on YouTube, on some history of the uilleann ("ill'-en") pipes. Many famous players and makers are featured. Many parts of it are in the Irish language, which is fascinating in itself for non-speakers, with subtitles in English. It is really well worth a view.

Part 2 -

Many thanks to YouTube user fergmaun, whoever he or she may be, for posting this gem!
