...his phrasing and meticulous employment of bent notes and timbral alterations cracked the heart of the tune wide open, making it unspeakably desolate, yet as beautiful as death itself."

- THE IRISH TIMES
I make music on the Irish Uilleann Pipes, I travel the world as a solo musician, in duos with fiddlers, Martin Hayes & Willie Kelly and in collaborations with many other artists, including Edges of Light, Masters of Tradition, Pipers Union, the baroque ensemble Camerata Kilkenny, ConTempo Quartet and pipe-organist Malcolm Proud.
I have three solo uilleann piping recordings, the first two released by Claddagh Records, the third, self published. 'Apples in Winter` is my most recent recording, a duet of fiddle and pipes with Willie Kelly of New York. This year Lyric FM published `The Piper & the Fairy Queen` with baroque ensemble Camerata Kilkenny.
I`ve had the extraordinary pleasure of performing on some of the most beautiful stages in the world including the Sydney Opera house and the legendary Broadway Studio 54. This is a sample of my exciting musical journey.
You are very welcome here!
David Power`s experiments with time are rich and complex and yield a new and invigorating approach to uilleann pipe playing." Ellen Crannitch RTE LYRIC FM
