There are music makers and then there are consummate musicians fused to the rhythm, the rise and fall, the tone and thrust of ceol ársa na hÉireann. Richard Neylon is one such sonorous person; lucky for us he chose this path in life
Richard Neylon is one of the most exciting pipers to emerge on the scene in many years, and his new recording SONDA, has gone straight into my favourites list. Musically rivetting!!!
A demonstrably brilliant musician
Memorable.. Old style, grand tunes, big sets of powerful piping..
Look out for the name.. and expect great things..
A powerhouse of musical talent
He has this power to make the uilleann pipes sing beautifully..

“Superbly nuanced technical piping. An accomplished debut!” ★★★★
