I went to Weston, Missouri today with fellow uilleann (pronounced ill un, it is the Irish word for elbow) piper Marc Carter to visit the craftsman who made our pipes. Kirk Lynch makes wonderful pipes from a workshop in a small Missouri town. Here’s a link to Kirk’s work: http://www.kirklynch.com/. He made my pipes 20 years ago and they only get better with age. I just need to play them more. Here are some scenes from his workshop. He is truly one-of-a-kind.
