Tommy Keane was born in Waterford City, Ireland in 1953. While in his early twenties, after playing tin whistle for a couple of years, he met local piper Tommy Kearney who encouraged him to take up the uilleann pipes. After attending the Willie Clancy Summer School where he developed his piping skills (with the help of pipers Pat Mitchell and Liam O'Flynn) he became much in demand as a session musician and worked with musicians including Elvis Costello, The Pogues, Clannad, Ralph McTell and more. He has toured with Liam Clancy, Tony McMahon and Seamus Tansey and has performed with The Irish Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra.

Originally released in 1991 on Mulligan Records, The Piper's Apron was Tommy Keane's debut solo recording and includes the first sighting of a musical duet with his wife Jacqueline McCarthy on concertina. The Piper's Apron features Tommy on uilleann pipes and tin whistle along side guest musicians Henry Benagh (fiddle), Paul Grant (guitar),Tommy Hayes (percussion), Michael Hynes (flute), Brendan O'Regan (bouzouki, synthesizer & guitar), and Jacqueline McCarthy (concertina).
