The Piping of Patsy Touhey, p. 4, quotes from program and reviews of this concert. From the program Touhey played "Youghal Harbour" and "The Hare in the Corn". A reviewer, from the Irish World, April 20, 1901, p. 6 says he played "John O'Dwyer of the Glens", Brian Boru's March" [program published in Irish World April 6, 1901, p. 8, column 7] and as encores "The Connacht Man's Ramble" and "Miss McLeod's Reel." "... the best piper that has been heard in New York in recent years." Further, the Irish World article quotes the "... relentless and merciless musical critic of the "Evening Sun...." 'Patrick Touhey, with his selections upon the real old Irish pipes, supplied the feature of the programme, which best accorded with the popular conception of Irish music. The "piobaireacht," as it is called, is a cumbrous affair which calls into play both hands and wrists of the performer, while the left elbow is used to push a bellows after the manner of an organ. It is not nearer than second cousin to the better known bagpipes.' tu+

Many were the remarks heard in commendation of the Society's efforts to reinstate this characteristically Irish instrument in the place of honor at Irish social functions."

A mention of Touhey at this event in the "Gaelic Notes" column for May 18, 1901, below. The author compares Scotch and Irish bagpipes:
'We also agree with him [Bernard Farrell, in a letter to the Irish World, same page, column 5] that the Irish pipe is admirably suited for indoor entertainment, while the so-called Scotch instrument is not. We heard Mr. Touhey recently in the comparatively small rooms of the Gaelic Society, playing for a dance on "La Bealtaine," and the tone of the pipes was most mellow and musical.'

The Irish Bagpipe.
Its Present and Future Status as a National Musical Instrument.
(Interview with Mr. Patrick Touhey, the celebrated Irish-American Piper.)
[selected excerpts]
'... our representative sought an interview with the celebrated Irish piper, Mr. Patrick Touhey, at his home, 1388 Bristow street, Borough of the Bronx.
'Mr. Touhey is a piper of national reputation in America, and we found him quite as intelligent and as well informed on the subject of the bagpipe-and indeed on Irish music generally-as he is a good performer. He is quite a young man, who was brought here by his parents when he was eight years old, and in answer to the question: "How did you become a piper?" he replied: "My father and grandfather were pipers before me, and it was quite natural I should become one, though I sometimes think I would have been a piper anyway."
...
' "As to the art of pipe playing I do not think that has deteriorated much," said Mr. Touhey. "The players I know now are as good as the average of the older pipers I knew, but of course famous pipers, like other artists, are not born every day. ..."
' "The Irish pipe, however, has been sadly neglected on the whole in America. Of course we have had some great players here, such as Taylor, Eagan, etc. I began learning from the two named when I was eleven years old, and considered myself a master of the instrument at twenty-one. Yes, it's difficult and intricate. There is a general feeling that it must be "in you" or else you cannot reproduce the old Irish airs with the original flavor-with the 'brogue,' as some call it-which is its chiefest charm.
' "The only organized effort I had observed to cultivate and popularize Irish pipe music in America was in Chicago. Frank O'Neill, now chief of police in that city, was the principal promoter of this movement, and other leaders in it were Sergeants James Cahill and James Early and Mr. John Ennis, all good players and enthusiasts. The sergeants mentioned also make first class chanters. They are still actively engaged in it, and I think they will yet meet with greater success.
' "... In fact, I think the future of the pipes, as well as of the music and language, depends largely on the Gaelic movement. For this reason I do not speak so despondently of the return of the pipes to their former place, as I would have done some years ago. I see that as a result of the Gaelic revival a pipers' club was started in Cork, and another, I believe, in Dublin. The fact that a man over there wrote out here a short time ago to inquire where he could have pipes made, shows how even the art of making the pipes had died out in Ireland, like a great many other ars and industries. ...
' "It was also very pleasing and somewhat of a surprise to learn that no fewer than thirty-one pipes entered the competition for pipe playing at the 'Oireachtas,' and some of them came from parts of the country where it was not supposed there was a piper at all for a great many years back.
' "So the outlook for the bagpipes is not so bad on the whole, though there should be no need of a movement to revive them, as they should have never have been neglected. It was really only in the last two generations that the pipes declined, and this I believe is largely true of the music as a whole and the language. ..." '

Gaelic Notes.
'We understand the convention of the Gaelic League of America is fixed for Aug. 26, [in Chicago,] and all arrangements are completed. [The writer complains that the Executive of the Gaelic League, presumably in New York, was not consulted or informed of the arrangements, some of which are considered "utterly un-Gaelic."] This is simply copying after the different American "orders" and "lodges," who like great and foolish, and often mighty cheap, pomp and ceremony....
'There is no doubt that the Chicagoans will make the public meeting after the convention a huge success, they having engaged no less a hall than the big Auditorium.
'Mr. Frank O'Neill, Chief of Police of Chicago, has charge of the musical programme, which is a guarantee that it will be thoroughly Irish. Our readers will remember that in the interview with the celebrated piper, Mr. Touhey, which we published recently, Chief O'Neill was mentioned as having been an enthusiastic promoter of the Irish bagpipe, on which instrument he himself is a good performer.'

Successful Irish Dance....
"The Springfield Irish Language Society held one of those dances last Thursday evening ... [they] had to entertain five hundred guests as best they could in small quarters. This was not hard, as all that could find room danced to the music of the pipes of Mr. P. Tuohy, the great Irish piper, and in connection with the pipes, or rather pipe music, it is a source of mystery to any one who witnesses its effect on the Irishman how he ever allowed the pipes to die, or nearly so, and why we Gaels should not all the more intensley hate the civilization that would smother these feelings in the breast of the Irishman."

"Pat Touhey is a very funny comedian, and has been received with great favor all along the line, on account of his strenuous efforts to do away with the rank caricature of his race, which for so long was considered by a very small minority as comedy. He sets an excellent example to his brother comedians by appearing in a neat, refined make-up. His monologue is extremely funny, and his Irish bagpipe solos invariably bring down the house.
... "John J Shepard, the German senator from Tsinsinnatta, is not as careful in his caricature of his own race as Mr. Touhey. He is very conscientious, however, about keeping his audience laughing for a solid 15 minutes."

St. Louis MO World's Fair Irish Village April 30-August 20?, 1904
Touhey played mostly solo performances here. Here also the "stage-Irishman" controversy.

The St. Louis World's Fair, officially known as the Louisana Purchase Exposition, ran from April 31-Dec. 1, 1904.

"So novel and captivating was his performance of all varieties of music on the Irish pipes on the stage of the Irish Theatre, that the members of the "International Association of Chiefs of Police," about 200 in number, who attended the play in a body, encored his playing repeatedly, and wanted him to continue his wonderful music indefinitely, but four encores were all the stage manager would allow."
Irish Minstrels and Musicians by Francis O'Neill, Chicago, 1913 p. 313

The International Association of Chiefs of Police met at the World's Fair June 6?-10, 1904.
'Francis O'Neil, Superintendent of Police of Chicago, read an interesting paper [June 7]. His subject was "The Chief of Police, His Duties and Difficulties." '
St Louis Republic June 8, 1904 p. 5 column 3
http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn84020274/1904-06-08/ed-1/seq-2/

"Chiefs' Convention Ends With Banquet
...
"As a climax and finale to the visit of the Chiefs of Police of the United States and Canada to St. Louis, the officials of the Louisana Purchase Exposition were hosts at a banquet to the visitors at the Irish Village on the Pike last night. Covers were laid for 500."
St Louis Republic June 10, 1904 p. 8 column 3
http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn84020274/1904-06-10/ed-1/seq-8/

It seems likely that the event mentioned in IMM took place at St. Louis. If so it might have been at the banquet, or at some other time during the convention. A Wikipedia reference says that the organization was founded in 1893, took its present name in 1902. Would be interesting to see a list of places & dates where conventions were held.

Comments

This photograph shows Touhey playing for dancers, with the assistance of an unnamed young piper. I have found no information about the dancer on the left, but the other three are The Kelly Trio, brought over from Dublin to perform at the World's Fair. More information about them is below.

Identification of the other piper is uncertain. Some maintain that is is likely Tom Ennis (1889-1931) of Chicago, who would have been about 15 years old in 1904. Ennis' father played pipes. Tom Ennis had a reasonably successful career as a piper and professional musician. I suppose the theory is that the photo commemorates a visit to St. Louis by Ennis.

Another more plausible candidate is Edward Harrison. Edward, William and Simon Harrison, brothers from Dublin, performed at the St. Louis World's Fair, 1904. All three were described as pipers and dancers. Edward, the eldest of the three, was perhaps 16 at the time. An Edward Harrison placed in piping competitions in Dublin, 1903 and 1906. I have found no good evidence that the other brothers were pipers.

"Ned Harrison, a Dubliner and the youngest in the Club except myself, was a very good piper. He had a grand set of pipes made by Bill Rowesome. Ned was one of the Irish group sent over to the St. Louis Exposition in 1907 and his father got the set especially made for the occasion. They had four drones and four regulators and sounded like a small organ."

"Liberality, and a disposition to aid those financially embarrassed, were by no means conducive to prosperity, so [uilleann piper William] Andrews took to the stage with Sydney Kelly, the dancer - one of the famous Kelly trio. They made their first appearance with great success, in February, 1912, at the Empire Theatre, Dublin, and then went to Liverpool. After touring the principal halls of Lancashire and Yorkshire, Kelly got disabled from blood-poisoning of the hand, and their programme was thus brought to a sudden ending. ..."

The Stage Irishman Controversy
Selected References

For an account of Touhey's experience at the St. Louis World's Fair, see my article, "Trouble in the Irish Village," published in An Piobaire July 2015, pp. 26-8.

'Let Gaelic League branches and other Irish societies take due note of the scoundreilsm of Patrick Tuohy, the earstwhile popular Irish piper, in this St. Louis affair. Tuohy professes great patriotism and sympathy with the Gaelic educational work when being employed by Gaelic societies, but he turned monkey at St. Louis. He dressed up in the usual beast style, and he made a "joke" by saying he was mistaken for a monkey. Let us remember it.'
Irish World June 11, 1904 p. 8 column 3

'Gaelic Notes'
Comments on a letter, not here reprinted, 'from Myles J. Murphy, director of amusements at the Irish exhibit in St. Louis, in regard to the Stage-Irishman trouble and our comments thereon.' Apparently Murphy fired three actors from Dublin, performing Irish plays at the World's Fair, allegedly because they were incompetent. Actors responded in part by becoming indignant about Touhey's perfomances - a stage Irishman. Or perhaps the actors complained about Touhey, and were fired because of the complaint. The columnist makes a distinction between "dramatic art" and the work of Touhey, a good piper but no actor.
'Then who in the world would consider Mr. Touhey-apart from his vulgar and offensive "jokes"-as capable of doing justice to dramatic art? He is a good piper, but surely no one would accuse him of the conceit that he is an actor!'
'We don't want in this matter to hear a dissertation upon the Dublin players, we want to know whether it is true that Touhey has "made-up" and "joked" and "acted" as alleged, and if so, firstly, whether it is to stop immediately; and, secondly, what excuse and apology the management and Murphy have to make for this wanton revival of the stage Irishman at such a time and at such a place.'
'Touhey's appearance at the New York Gaelic Society's Feis Ceol may be and is a certificate of his ability as a piper, but it does not answer the question as to his conduct in St. Louis. He would not dare to do any of his stage-Irishman "stunts" at the Gaelic Society's festival, or he would find himself on the outside of the hall before he could finish even one of his "jokes." ... Charged that he tolerated, or produced, Touhey in St. Louis as a stage Irishman in the disgusting old-time "make-up" and with his offensive "jokes" and "songs," Mr. Murphy answers that Touhey played the pipes at the N. Y. Gaelic Society's Feis Ceol-where, of course, he had to appear as a Christian and do nothing but play his pipes! What a way of answering a charge.'

Actors return to Dublin; Murphy apparently halts performance of imported Irish plays; Touhey keeps doing his act.
