Valerio Vettorimusician, composer
I’m an uilleann pipes, clarinet and tin-whistle player. The music I play ranges from traditional folk tunes (mainly Irish)
to improvisation and my own compositions.
I grew up in Bassano del Grappa, a little town in northern Italy. At the age of twenty I started travelling around Europe,
South America and Australia, joining other musicians in gigs, sessions and street performances. From my busking background
comes “The Market Day” my first solo EP.
I perform as a solo musician,
in duo with harpist Sophie Liebregts
, as a member of
the balfolk band Rolling Around
in the neo-trad project Circle Dream
with pianist Michele Bargigia and during the poetry readings by Marta Telatin
I also make uilleann pipes reeds
I'm currently based in Padua.
