Uilleann Piper Peter Browne was born in Dublin in 1953 and commenced playing traditional music at the age of 6, receiving tuition from three of the great players of modern times; Séamus Ennis, Leo Rowsome and Willie Clancy and on reaching his 'teens was already acknowledged as a leading player of that instrument.
He worked in RTÉ Radio for over 40 years with a special interest in traditional music, hosting programmes such as The Rolling Wave, Sounds Traditional, Áirneán, Mo Cheol Thú, Céilí House and in the late 1970s he presented a ground-breaking series The Long Note.
