This is well worth $22! There is information her that I had completely forgotten about. Well done for getting this up and running.

The Pipers Review Archive is now complete back to the first issue in 1979. As new issues become available in print, the prior issue will be added to the archive.

The missing issue from 1981 has also been added and the review summaries document has been corrected and updated.

In addition to The Pipers Review, I have added the complete first volume of 6 issues of The Uilleann Piper, a newsletter started by the Rev. James MacKenzie of North Carolina in 1974. It is believed to be the first newsletter/publication dedicated to the uilleann pipes in the United States.

It is unknown whether there were subsequent volumes or issues of The Uilleann Piper. Should you have knowledge of such, please let me know so that they can be added to this archive.

Have Fun!

Jeff

Rock and Roll baby!!! Thanks for your time and hard work bringing these past issues to light and to our access. You are a good man Jeff!!! :D

Thanks again to Wally Charm for offering up the archives for this project!!! For those of you who are not yet memberrs of The Review, I highly recommend you become so. The Review is a great (IMHO greatest) published resource for all things Uilleann. $18 for a year long membership ( $19 in Canada, $22 international), is one hell of a good deal!

You can get club info and registration info here:

Thanks Joe, one last thing, if anyone has any material - print, audio, picture, video that you believe is of importance to the uilleann piping community and would like to make it available, please let me know as I would be more than willing to host it either within this archive or a new (un)restricted one. :-)

Jeff, maybe I'm missing something but, in the early years' issues, when a tune was transcribed from a piping recording, I am not seeing the name of the transcriber. Any guesses? For my own use, I have been poking at converting some of the piping transcriptions into abc. From the abc version, I can then plug it into one of several programs and listen. This conveys more to me than the dots. It would be nice to be able to name the transcriber.

Thx,

djm

Deej, I posted your question to Wally Charm, here is his reply:

<<Hi Jeff,

Sometimes the person who transcribed the tunes is named. Most of the time the tunes were just copied down from some obscure music book and used to fill in some blank pages. If this person wants to talk about tunes he should get in touch with John Walsh.

All the best,

Wally >>

Great effort! What about putting all the pdf files on a CD to sell to subscribers and make a little extra $ for the club?

Something you ought to take up with Wally Charm. I have to wonder if the cost of producing the CDs would be worth the venture.

of course the CD would only be as complete as the most recent issue.

Yup.


Although, I really can see it being offered as a box set... The Piper's Review: "The Early Issues." Then another (see the NEXT) box set entitled: "The Second Set." And so on and so forth...

Each CD containing 3 or 4 issues. Food for thought.


Wally? What are your thoughts regarding this idea?

Better to post them right here. You have threads for each year's worth of newsletters. Why not a separate thread for just the abc related to The Pipers' Review?

I would suggest that this be controlled by the moderators, similar to the threads with the newsletters, to ensure that you don't get fifty transcriptions of one tune and none of another.

The tunes could be arranged per newsletter issue, so that the thread could continue to be updated on a going-forward basis.

Just a thought,

Here is an example of the kind of trouble I can get into when not properly supervised by an adult:

This is just a tad too long for Tune-o-Tron to handle correctly when converting to dots. The PDF version it produces is, at least, legible. However, for listening to MIDI or from inside your favourite ABC editor it should do fine. Any mistakes are mine, I'm sure. Any corrections appreciated.

There's always this convertamatic, and it works well enough for me.
