Uilleann pipes or bagpipes?

I would just like to thank the piper so much for today, it was a beautiful addition to my grandfathers funeral and I honestly couldn't fault it in any way".Thank you again x Jade E.

"Dear Sean, I would just like say how wonderful the Uillean Piper was for my husband Paul's wake. The choice of music he played was excellent and he certainly played a little longer than his booked hour, everybody was very complimentary. I cannot fault the service that you provided". Kindest regards, Mrs Jackie O..

The uilleann pipes are perceived as more of an 'Irish' instrument. The haunting celtic sounds are considered by many as profoundly Irish. The main differences between the uilleann Pipes and the bagpipes, apart from the sound, are that the uilleann pipes are played seated and the piper wears smart casual attire. The bagpiper is standing and more mobile. He also wears a kilt and uniform, which for some clients is a decisive factor in choice.
