Patrick (Patsy) and Mary Touhey.
Patrick (Patsy) Touhey (1865-1923) was one of the greatest Uilleann pipers of that time. He immigrated from Ireland to the US and in his late teens/early 20s, he played pipes in Harrigan's Double
Hibernicon show. 78 recordings of his playing exist and coincidentally, my husband (Richard Twomey) collects Patsy Touhey 78s! Imagine my surprise when I learned he played in moving panorama shows!
Here's a newspaper review of one of the shows:
'Harrigan's Hibernian Panorama and Specialy show entertained a fair-sized audience last evening. The panorama of Irish scenery,
with views of cities, castles, and places of historic interest, were much appreciated. Beside these views, the "two Barneys," Messers Jerry and Time Cohan, gave a unique exhibition of Irish character. The Irish bagpipers, Pat. Toohey and John Eagan, formed
an excellent part of the show; it was probably the best music on the bagpipes ever heard here. There was lively dancing, of the Irish jig sort.'
