Todd Denman

Todd Denman has been performing the uilleann pipes since 1982 and is recognized as an American master of the instrument. A rare form of bagpipe native to Ireland, the uilleann pipes are bellows inflated and have the largest musical and harmonic capacity of all bagpipes in the world. Having received an NEA endowment as a young man in 1982, Todd studied in Ireland and performed in Europe, Ireland and across the US. His recordings have reached Top-10 charts and received wide acclaim in both Ireland and America. His theatrical performances have sold out and he has been a California Arts Council Touring Artist for many seasons.

Combining American clogging and Irish step dancing with original choreography, Todd Denman and Aniar perform a fully theatrical musical show, entitled Soulstice. Playing in a variety of advanced piping styles, from traditional to modern improvisations, including both period "flat" pitch and modern instruments, Todd's music combines drive and detail with a musical originality.
