The Killasser Flute, O'Sullivan Meets O'Farrell, 1 and 2
O'Sullivan Meets O'Farrell, Volume I
"We should all celebrate the fact that someone has finally gone to the trouble of performing and recording O’Farrell’s music for the Union bagpipes. Jerry’s attention to detail, exactitude and sensitivity to the history of these tunes ensures that they will be preserved for future generations, enabling this important musical collection and its history to come to life and remain alive. The subtle differences which distinguish these pieces can be fragile, at times hard to discern, always challenging – but the reward for the educated listener is the joy of knowing that all these subtleties are audibly preserved in a form that all listeners will agree is the most sophisticated and tasteful rendering possible."

O'Sullivan Meets O'Farrell, Volume II
"In 2005 New York City-born uilleann piper Jerry O'Sullivan released O'Sullivan Meets O'Farrell, Volume One; 15 tracks of the melodically verdant, largely neglected compositions found in O'Farrell's tune collections from the 18th century. In volume two, O"Sullivan focuses on the more pronounced baroque compositions from those collections that demand more than just uilleann pipes to convey their full flavor. To achieve that, he brought into the studio two masters from the Newport Baroque Orchestra: Paul Cienniwa on harpsichord and Audrey Sabattier-Cienniwa on period cello, for whom Boston musician Kevin O'Brien wrote continuo parts. The album consists of four beautifully arranged suites teeming with tunes, plus the concluding Sheeling O Guira; performed as a glistening uilleann pipes solo. The long-deceased, oft-forgotten Mr. O'Farrell comes alive again through the muse and mastery of Mr. O'Sullivan. This second meeting between them is a drop-dead gorgeous recording." See Reviews page.

"Jerry O'Sullivan's long-standing excellence on the uilleann pipes is celebrated globally. His style is the outcome of many influences, but what makes his uilleann piping unique is how effectively he integrates those influences with his own personality, taste, invention, and sense of wonder. Grateful for the guidance and support he's received in the past, Jerry is also dedicated to passing on the instrument's beauty and intricacies through teaching."
