Allan passed away in April 2015.

Over many years he established a reputation as one of the most skilful and expert makers & fine-tuners of reeds for the uilleann pipes in the world.
He was also a skilled piper, and I have many fond memories of working with him back in the late '80's and throughout the 90's, as a harp & pipes duo, and also in the bands Hafren and Howling at Ravens.

He was a truly unique character, and will be greatly missed.
