Hello to all my friends new and old!
Its been a wonderful year and the seasons have taken us to many new places and in return we have lots of musicians and bands having a grand time with their new instruments. New bands in the Carbony Celtic Winds family include Celtica, Darren McMullen, Kennedy’s Kitchen, Blackthorn, Keltic Kudzu, Ben Homes, Peter Purvis and Coyote Run.
In the process of traveling to over twenty different festivals and games this year, we did manage to fit in the development of several brand new instruments and refinements on existing designs. Most notable is the full set of Great Highland Bagpipes and the new dual drone Gaita. We also had a great breakthrough on our Irish flute which now features a hepta-taper design, enhancing the resonance of each primary note.
We created a Carbony Celtic Winds facebook page to share stories, videos and soundclips, if you haven’t already, please like us! Also this year we have established Carbony Celtics Winds as a part of Pipe Makers Union, LLC. The registration of this new business name grounds our intent and the future direction of our company.
