uilleann pipes

[Irish, elbow pipe]

A species of bagpipe known in Ireland. The uilleann pipes are different from the Scottish bagpipe because it is filled with air by means of a bellows activated by the performer squeezing the bellows against his side with his elbow. It has a softer, more melodic sound than the Scottish bagpipe.
