Seth gallagher uilleann pipes are made from the highest quality materials, with the utmost concern for detail, and with styling reminiscent of the classic irish pipe makers. Seth Gallagher Workshop New York United States: Before taking up the Uilleann pipes I played Highland pipes, first with the Boston Fire Department Pipe Band and then with the Worcester Kiltie Band. After learning of the existence of Planxty and the Bothy Band, however, I realized I'd found the instrument for me: the Uilleann Pipes.
While living in Boston I worked at the Von Huene Workshop in Brookline, making baroque and renaissance recorders and flutes. Under the guidance of master instrument maker Friedrich Von Huene I learned all aspects of instrument making, from toolmaking to hand-turning to wood-finishing. After almost four years there, I moved to New York to be with Erika Wood (2now my wife and webmaster) and to start my own business making Uilleann Pipes and now Wooden Flutes as well.
