Brian Hughes is widely considered to be one of the finest tin whistle players of his generation. From Athy in Co. Kildare, his earliest introduction to music was through his grandfather, Christy Bracken, a noted bagpipe player, In addition to the tin whistle, Brian has a great interest in the flute and the uilleann pipes and was a regular visitor to the famous Pipers’ Club on Henrietta Street, Dublin, in his youth.
He has released three solo albums – Whistle Stop, Whirlwind and The Beat of the Breath. Reviewing The Beat of the Breath, the Irish Times drew particular attention to the “unfussy clarity, clean tone and keen rhythmic sensibility” of his playing.
