Mickey Dunne is a world renowned uilleann piper, steeped in the traveller music tradition of his family. He has been teaching on Univeristy of Limerick’s MA Irish Traditional Music Performance for 20 years.  Mickey Dunne is a member of the Dunne Family, one of the great musical families of Ireland with a heritage stretching back many generations. Mickey’s greatest musical influence has been his father Paddy Dunne, who was without question a man ahead of his time in the art of fiddle playing. There are no recordings of Paddy Dunne, but he was a unique musician and master of his art, who encouraged and supported all his family in music.

Having studied the art of pipe making under the craftsmanship of the legendary Cillian O’Briain, Mickey is now manufacturing top quality chanters, practice sets and reeds in Caherconlish, Co Limerick.

Mickey’s first uilleann pipe CD “The Limerick Lassies” has been hailed as a “pipering masterpiece” with copies available from “Na Piopairi Uileann” in Dublin.

Mickey’s style of piping embodies the free flowing travelling style associated with the legendary Johnny Doran, Finbar Furey and Paddy Keenan who have provided Mickey with his inspiration.
