International Uilleann Piping Day 2020 Online Concert
Will Woodson and Caitlin Finley
Saturday, November 7, 2020
1pm Central Time on Facebook and YouTube
Join us for a live set from piper Will Woodson and fiddler Caitlin Finley in celebration of International Uilleann Piping Day 2020! Will and Caitlin will interpret tunes from the Francis O'Neill Cylinders and the Dunn Family Collection, which include recordings of the piping luminaries Patsy Touhey, James Early, and Bernard Delaney. This will be broadcast live from the Ward Irish Music Archives Facebook page and YouTube channel.
Will Woodson (flute, uilleann pipes) and Caitlin Finley (fiddle) play sparky and driving traditional Irish music that’s grounded in the textures and rhythms of the rich Irish-American soundscape of the 1920s and 30s. With roots in the living Irish musical cultures of Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia, and a tremendous admiration for the first generation of recorded Irish musicians, the duo conjure up the sounds of the dance halls, vaudeville theaters, and house sessions central to Irish-American music from the first half of the twentieth century.
