It's Irish traditional music. For twenty years, Tipperary man Pat Egan has developed his own powerfully emotive style of guitar accompaniment and vocal delivery. He has chosen to feather his nest with some wonderful but little-known songs, old and new, that fit into both traditional and contemporary contexts.
The scarcity of uillean pipes led Tim Britton to make his own set, later to become highly respected in that field. His book on reed making is considered a classic text.
For over twenty years he has been touring, teaching, and recording, appearing on over two dozen records with the likes of Mick Moloney, Eileen Ivers, Johnny Cunningham, Robbie O'Connell, Gerald Trimble, Bela Fleck, John McCutcheon, Patrick Ball, Paddy O'Brien, and many others. Since 1997 he has been touring with Paddy O'Brien and Pat Egan under the name of Chulrua.
