Nicolas Brown CD Release Show

November 4, 2023 @ 4:00 pm

$15 – $20

Nicolas Brown was born in Illinois and raised in Ontario, and first started playing Irish music when he was in his late teens. A friend lent him a practice set of uilleann pipes, with which he proceeded to torture his extremely patient and understanding parents. Norman Stiff (a student of Dublin born Chris Langan) started teaching him and gave him two CDs: one of Willie Clancy and one of Seamus Ennis. Nicolas proceeded to listen to these two albums on repeat for the next year. Eventually, he got his own set of pipes, a flute, and some more recordings, and set out on his journey down the Irish music rabbit hole. His album, Good Enough Music For Them Who Love It, is comprised of tunes from approximately the 1750s to the 1820s, as his set of pipes was likely made some time after the 1750s and before the 1800s. The tunes included here may even have been played on this very same set of pipes some 200-250 years ago!
