Kathleen has been playing the uilleann pipes somewhere in the middle of the "21 years to become a piper." She was taken by the playing of Kieran O'Hare while listening to a live performance of The Green Fields of America somewhere in the 1990's, and that was it for her. Additionally she fills out the band with her tin whistle playing. Her main influences and inspiration come from the playing and philosophies of Benedict Koehler, Brian McNamara, and Tommy Reck. She enjoys introducing people to the sound of Irish music.
