Na Píobairí Uilleann’s latest publication, Music for the Irish Pipes: Volume 3, compiled by Joe Doyle, was formally launched by the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Cllr. Caroline Conroy, at an event in the NPU’s headquarters in Henrietta Street, Dublin recently. The book is the third in a series of collections of transcriptions of classic recordings of pipers from the past – which aim to make the music of the pipes accessible to students in a practical way.
 
The book’s author, Joe Doyle, is a gifted piper and a talented teacher. Music for the Irish Pipes: Volume 3 is Joe’s fourth publication for NPU. With this new book, Joe has now published transcriptions of more than 1,000 tunes.
 
Priced €25, Music for the Irish Pipes: Volume 3 is available in the NPU’s online shop at http://pipers.ie/store.
