Aaron O’Hagan is a musician and maker of fine instruments, specialising in uilleann pipes and the traditional wooden flute.
Born in Belfast, Aaron’s first introduction to traditional Irish music was through his grandfather James, learning his first notes on the tin whistle and getting a few tunes from him. With much encouragement and support from family this was the start of a new path for life.
Aaron progressed onto the flute and pipes later, learning from local musician Brendan Mulholland and Belfast piper Patrick O’Hare.
He has been involved in several musical projects over the last few years and toured Europe and America promoting traditional Irish music.
Most recently he has produced an album of traditional material alongside renowned bouzouki player, Luke Ward, “From the Devil’s Punchbowl”, which was released at the Ennis Trad Festival In November 2021.
