Dick Hensold, a "master piper with an exquisite touch" (City Pages), specializes in four genres: early music, celtic music (specifically the traditional music of Scotland, Ireland, Northumberland and Cape Breton Island), Nordic folk music, and Cambodian traditional music. He performs on Northumbrian small-pipes (a quiet bagpipe from Northeast England), Medieval greatpipes, Scottish Highland pipes, Swedish bagpipes, recorder, seljefløyte (Norwegian willow flute), low whistle and traditional Cambodian reed instruments. One of the foremost Northumbrian smallpipers in North America, he has performed in both Scotland and Northumberland, and has taught Northumbrian smallpipes at workshops in the United States, Canada, and Northumberland. He has played the Winnipeg Folk Festival, the Edinburgh Folk Festival, and the Lowland and Border Piper's Society Collogue (Peebles, Scotland). He is principal composer and arranger for the Celtic-oriented quartet Piper's Crow, and also performs with several other folk groups and as part of a traditional Cambodian ensemble. He released his solo CD, Big Music for Northumbrian Smallpipes, in August 2007.
