Seamus inherited the piping from his father, James Ennis, and collected songs and stories from the great Gaeltacht singers of Ireland and of Scotland. During the1950s, he collected material for the BBC and also presented the pioneering music programme ?As I Roved Out?.The present collection of songs, storytelling, and instrumental music on both uilleann pipes and tin whistle was first released by Gael Linn, on LP record, in 1961. It reveals the many aspects of S?amus Ennis?s talent and his deep understanding of the tradition.On some tracks, S?amus introduces the music. So, take a chair, sit up to the hearth, and listen as a master of the tradition unveils the beauty, and the joy, of the Irish inheritance.
