Nicolas As a Teacher
Nicolas Brown was givien two CDs when he first started learning the pipes: one of Willie Clancy and one of Seamus Ennis. He proceeded to listen to these two recordings on repeat for the next year. Eventually, he got his own set of pipes and a flute (and some more CDs!) and set out on his journey down the Irish music rabbit hole. In the 2 decades since he first picked up a tin whistle, Nicolas has not only become a very proficient musician, but has also developed a vast knowledge of Irish music history, about the old musicians, tune histories, Irish music in America, and more. Nicolas has performed and given workshops at venues and festivals throughout Canada and the United States. He plays a hybrid concert pitch “D” set of uilleann pipes, a Joe Kennedy flat pitch “B” set of union pipes, an antique set of union pipes pitched in D from the mid-1700s, and John Gallagher flutes in F, D, and B.
