[PRE-ORDER 28/1] Leo Rowsome
Rí na bPíobairí - Remaster




Claddagh Records


Irish Traditional

PRE-ORDER: January 28th 2022


Coming Soon to Claddagh Records, Leo Rowsome’s ‘The King of the Pipers’ remastered and released on CD for the first time in 40 years.

Claddagh Records are delighted to re-release one of the most celebrated piping albums of all- time back onto CD. Leo Rowsome’s final commercial recording, The King of the Pipers (Rí na bPíobairí) was released on Claddagh Records in 1966.

Rowsome, already a hugely well-established and well-acclaimed uilleann piper, was the first Irish artist to appear and perform on BBC radio in 1933. ‘The King Of The Pipers’ is all the proof necessary of Rowsome’s immense talent and for all of the praise he had received up to its release.

Inspiring the likes of artists such as Liam O’Flynn, ‘The King Of The Pipers’ is an album brimming with life and exuding the love and sensitivity Leo Rowsome brought to his craft."
