Welcome to our ever-evolving website!Welcome to the website, piobagusfidil (piob agus fidil or pipes and fiddle) of Chicago-based musicians Patrick Cannady, uilleann piper, and Karen Cook Cannady, fiddler. If you are looking for an uilleann piper and a fiddler in Chicago that play very traditional Irish music, you have come to the right place!
Karen (fiddle) and Patrick (uilleann pipes) play traditional music learned through years of study, absorbing a large and growing repertoire from Chicago’s community of Irish immigrant and Irish American musicians, from old tune collections, and from recordings old and new. They have traveled thousands of miles to learn from masters, and spent countless hours honing and refining their sound, both at home and in the rough-and-tumble Chicago session scene. They play at folk festivals, regional and national trad music events, and St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. They are at work recording a collection of tunes presently.
They have made many appearances and have had tracks featured on both Irish and regional radio: A Feast Of Irish Folk - with Mary Caraway and Erik Carlsen, Blarney On The Air - with Shay Clarke, Celtic Roots Radio - with Raymond McCullough, The Brian Noonan Show - with Brian Noonan, Kitchen Party Ceilidh - with Dave Bagdade and Eclectic - Women of Substance Radio.
