Francis McPeake (1917 - 1986):
Francis McPeake was born in Belfast and began to play the pipes when he was eighteen years old. He formed the first McPeake Trio, which included his father, and they were to win the Llangollen International Music Eisteddfod three times. He afterwards included his children, which meant that the group had six members and was known as the McPeake Family. Among other places, they played in the Royal Festival Hall in London. He also formed the Clonard Traditional Music School, and many young people learned how to play traditional music there.
