Rob Say

Rob Say is one of today’s foremost performers of traditional music from the North East of England. A she learned, he was fortunate to be able to listen to, and play with, some of the greatest of the older generation of musicians.
 

He plays English concertina and the iconic instrument of Northumbria, the smallpipes, on which he has won many competitions. Here he duets with another champion piper Andy May, as well as being accompanied by the lively piano playing of Will Chamberlain.
 

Rob has absorbed his local style of playing, and he now continues and enhances one of the British Isles’ most vital musical traditions.
