Schlessman Hall, Level 1

A haunting instrument with an Irish pedigree, Uilleann pipes have never sounded better than when played by expert Eric Olson. He presents this fascinating concert on the bagpipes that are akin to the Scottish pipes that we all know so well. Uilleann pipes have a greater tonal and octave range, are subtle and poetic enough to play indoors, and are usually played sitting down. Because of the bellows attached to these pipes, the musician can speak and sing while the instrument is played. Don’t miss this rare chance to hear the wistful music of the Uilleann pipes floating through our great hall.
