Martin Crossin – Uilleann Pipes
Originally from Belfast, Martin is based in Milford, Co. Donegal. His interest in music developed from an early age. Martin describes Belfast as one of those pockets of the country where there was a thriving community of uilleann pipers.
His passion for music, and the uilleann pipes in particular, led to him gaining an All Ireland title and ultimately to making his own pipes.
Martin has taught workshops all over the country and has helped nurture up and coming local musicians by providing lessons and a supply of his own hand made instruments.
