Aidan O'Brien
Uilleann Pipes, Irish Flute & Whistles, Banjo

Aidan O'Brien began studying trumpet, piano and banjo in the Celtic/contemporary popular music idiom as a teenager.  His first "Celtic" band "Invermore" enjoyed success, supporting the Irish greats Christy Moore, Moving Hearts, The Furey Brothers, and Stockton's Wing.   His rock 'n roll credits include performing with the legendary Rob Strong and his son Andrew, who rose to fame in the Alan Parker film "The Commitments."  Aidan toured throughout Ireland with Brush Shields and later with Christy Dignam of the Irish band Aslan. 

He recorded Uilleann Pipes with John Richardson (ex Rubettes) on his album "Celtic Drums" and with the Duggan brothers of Clannad on the recording project "Rubican" in 2004.  In 2006 he played Uilleann Pipes in the orchestral production of Joe O'Donnell's album "Gaodhol's Vision" which featured at the Warwick Arts Festival. 

Aidan's interest in furthering the music education of children and teens has led him to be a pedagogical mentor in the city of Birmingham, teaching Celtic instruments, such as Tin Whistle and Uilleann Pipes. 

Aidan is currently working on his own solo album, an eclectic mix demonstrating all his musical influences to date, as well as taking part in further recording and performing projects with both John Richardson and Joe O'Donnell.
