The Antipypr's legendary LIVE show, complete with The Dante's Local House Band has finally been captured for posterity. One full hour of frenetic energy, red-hot jamming, and on-stage mayhem featuring the Antipypr and his friends at their crazy best.
Neil Anderson, known to his friends as "The Antipypr," has been on the road since 1995 transforming audiences with unique, energetic interpretations of traditional and original Celtic and world music.
To say Anderson is versatile is something of an understatement.
Neil first appeared on the Celtic festival circuit as one of the original members of Seven Nations.
He has since gone on to play with some of the most highly regarded artists in the Celtic genre, such as Irish traditional music icons Paddy Keenan, John Whelan, and The Chieftains.
Neil has also toured with New York City's most irreverent Irish rock-n-roll legends, Larry Kirwan and Black 47.
Still, it's not unusual to find him in kilt and tie performing in a more traditional mode at special events, ceremonies, or even as a guest soloist with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
In addition to his US concerts, Neil has toured Canada and Scotland, playing over 100 shows a year with some of the top artists in Celtic music today.
"When you listen to the Antipypr, you have to suspend your sense of what 'should' be done with a set of 'pipes. Why, you ask? Because Neil 'the Antipypr' Anderson has moved well beyond what 'should' be done, and off into the realm of what can be done. His technique is flawless, his style singular, and when it comes to expression there's no one better at it."
