Though this is a jazz site, I just wanted to tell everyone over in Dublin to keep watch for a band that may be calling themselves the DirtNappers. They've been playing the pubs for the past couple of months and have gotten great reviews. Their bass player named Jules(Julian) is phenomenal...very colorful guys...

Ronan - Your Page is pretty cool. I met your brother Oliver at an Irish festival in West Virginia called Augusta. He plays fiddle right. I just received a tape of you playing at the Tinoil in 1991 in Pittsburg. Your flat chanter has an amazing sound.


John Ceszynski in Menasha(Milwaukee), WI, USA at 23:52:10 Tuesday September 2 97
Ronan, It was nice to see you in Milwaukee for Irish fest. After 4 years of Willie week (91-94), and meeting you in person (Baker's Well, Milwaukee, in 81?-St. Louis feis 83/4?) I'd have to say that your piping is great! only to be topped (complimented by) by your sense of humor. Hope to see you again soon.

Just dropped in to have a look. I'm a relative beginner on the Uilleann pipes and eagerly looking for whatever info I can find about the instrument, its players, etc., especially playing tips, maintenance, and tour information. I'm very fortunate to study pipes with Al Purcell, who lives a short drive from my home in Rochester, MI. Perhaps we may get the chance to talk pipes when I visit Ireland nex year.

Ronan, I had no idea that you have recorded so much. A lot of what is on this web page I've never heard of because it is not available in the U.S.A. too bad ! Some of it sounds great. I thought the piper who played in the movie "Rob Roy" was Davy Spillane that was my guess anyway I was glad to know it was you, your style is very diverse. Good job! Your old student Kevin

Thanks for the fun and very informative page. JAZZ is my fav, with the Blues a definite second. My license plate is:LOVJAZ. If you ever have the opportunity to visit Montreal, they have the JAZZFEST. It's a wonderful event, with over 200 free acts placed throughout the city. And it's a great city to visit. If you don't speak French tho, sometimes they're a little miffec. Anyway, it's the first 10 days in July. I have gone for 14 years in a row, heard some awesome tunes, and restablished some great friends. Oh on my way to work, heard Laverne Baker died a couple days ago. Remember "Tweedledee" and "Jim Baker to the Rescue"? Oh well, if ya don't, then you're just a kid cuz she was from the late 50's. Well this is my first time on the web. Hope this gets to someone out there: And wishing you "happy tunes", "fun times", and "easy listening", from, "Tina Tunes"
