Tim Benson credits his passion for playing the uilleann pipes to the Chieftains' Matt Molloy. "He's the finest flute player on either side of the Atlantic," says the Benson, Bigler & Stamper
member. "I was inspired by this guru and plunged into the Irish flute with reckless abandon." For the past six months, Benson, fellow piper Brian Bigley, and guitarist Jimmy Stamper have been performing traditional Irish-pub ditties like "Red-Haired Charlie" and "Rose in the Heather." They're booked through the summer, playing at local festivals and clubs.
