This kid was arguably the best musician we saw. He has a leather pump bag under his right elbow that he uses to introduce pressure (just as Scottish bagpipes get pressure from the piper blowing air into the bag). The Irish pipes can sound somewhat like bagpipes or somewhat like a tin whistle or anywhere in between. The kid's fingers were flying, and he even introduced subtle jazz-like riffs into the traditional music. Fantastic.
