The Jacksonville Public Library’s final Music Under the Dome Series performer is set to take the stage on Sunday.
Dick Hensold, a leading Northumbrian smallpiper in North America, spoke with Gary Scott on WLDS’ “AM-Conversation” Monday morning.
A performer for the past 20 years, Hensold has played and taught in England, Scotland, Japan and Canada.
Hensold describes the interesting instrument he will be playing.
“Well it is a quiet bagpipe with the same volume as a violin. It has a big music range that is very versatile and plays different kinds of music. It is a very traditional bagpipe from the very northeastern corner of England,” says Hensold.
Hensold says his program features a variety of unknown instruments.
“In addition to the Northumbrian smallpipes I’m playing seljefoyte, sackpipa and the Welsh pibgorn,” says Hensold.
The show starts at 4 p.m. For more information about the artist, go online to www.dickhensold.com.
