Éanna Drury is from Dublin and has been playing the Uilleann Pipes since the age of 15. He got his first lessons from Maitiu Ó Casaide and then was taught by Gay McKeon and Emmett Gill in Na Píobairí Uilleann. It is from Emmett that the vast majority of Éanna's tuition came. His first instrument was the flute, learnt originally in primary school and later from Fermanagh flute player Gerry O'Donnell. Éanna has a particular interest in the older recordings of piping from players such as Seamus Ennis, Willie Clancy and Tommy Reck. Current players he finds influential include Pat Mitchell, Jimmy O'Brien Moran, Emmett Gill and Ronan Browne. He has performed at the Lorient Festival Interceltique, Willie Clancy Summer School and at Tionól na bPíobairí Uilleann, as well as on various radio programmes. In 2012 he won the Uilleann Piping competition at Oireachtas na Gaeilge.
