Martin Crossin - uilleann pipe maker
My workshop is based in County Donegal, Ireland and I have been manufacturing Uilleann pipes for the past 15 years.
Since winning an All Ireland title for uilleann piping I have also been a regular performer and recording session musician on the instrument, sharing stage and recording credits with the likes of Manus Lunny (Capercaille) , Dermot Byrne (Altan) and The Chieftains….
The Falls Road in Belfast, where I grew up, was one of those pockets of the country where traditional music and in particular the uilleann pipes seemed to thrive, a real hotbed of Uilleann Piping!
We all have an in built desire to be creative and in me it tends to manifest itself through music making, uilleann pipe making and teaching.
Perhaps, through this site, I can be of assistance to you in your own creativity by providing a high quality musical instrument, assisting you in your own original recordings or by building on your knowledge with lessons as we press on together with this unique musical instrument, the Uilleann Pipes.
