NPU The Movie!
A film on the foundation and history of NPU was broadcast on the TG4 national TV channel this week.
The film, produced by Dearcán Media, tells the story of the 1968 gathering that brought the uilleann pipes back from the brink of extinction.
Featuring interviews and performances from leading pipers, Liam O’Flynn, Paddy Moloney, Sean Óg Potts, Peter Browne, Gay McKeon, Pat Mitchell, Maitiú Ó Casaide, Néillidh Mulligan and Brian Vallely among others, the film is also augmented by archive recordings taken at the original 1968 gathering.
