Martin Nolan’s uilleann piping has taken him throughout Europe and the UK, India, Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Canada, from the Lincoln Center for the Arts in New York to the national theatres of Ireland and England and concert halls across the Indian subcontinent.
Respected in the Irish traditional scene, he has also played alongside jazz greats such as Dave Liebman, the late Michael Brecker, Ronan Guilfoyle, Conor Guilfoyle, Tommy Halferty, Michael Buckley and the Boclé Brothers.
Other collaborative work includes virtuoso Hungarian violinist Zoltan Lantos and Japanese performance artist Keiji Heino.
Martin Nolan’s pipes… caught the eddies, ducking and diving alongside the jazz lines with nervy agility… The wedding of sax and pipes was particularly spectacular.
– Irish Times (review of Michael Buckley’s Translations)
