Event Details

Piper and broadcaster Peter Browne will be in conversation with Michael Tubridy in the latest instalment of Na Piobairí Uilleann’s  Notes and Narratives series of illustrated lectures.

Originally from Kilrush, Co. Clare, Michael Tubridy grew up immersed in local music and dancing traditions, playing flute, whistle and concertina. A founding member of The Chieftains, he played with the group until 1979 when he returned full-time to his career as a structural engineer. Michael’s solo recording, The Eagle’s Whistle, was released by Claddagh in 1978. In 1998, he published A Selection of Irish Traditional Step Dances. Michael has travelled widely performing and teaching the music and dancing traditions of his native area.

Peter Browne began playing traditional music at a young age. His formation as  a piper was the product of tuition from three of the great players of modern times; Séamus Ennis, Leo Rowsome and Willie Clancy. In his career broadcasting with RTÉ Radio for over 40 years, Peter specialised in traditional music with programmes including The Long Note, Áirneán and The Rolling Wave.

Tickets – each costing €10/€5 (conc.) – are available from Eventbrite at For those who cannot attend in person, the event will be livestreamed on NPU-TV.
