The Seán Reid Society Journal is the result of the wishes of a small number of Uilleann, Union or Irish pipers who have a serious and particular interest in the history, music and technology of the Irish pipes. It is intended to be a living source which will develop and strengthen our understanding of the instrument, its playing and its history.
