This year Na Píobairí Uilleann is offering all IUPD organisers outside Ireland the opportunity to apply to host a piper at their event in 2019. The event must serve to raise initial awareness of the uilleann pipes or to build on the learning of existing uilleann pipers/teachers/reed makersOur commitment to providing a piper will of course be on the condition that NPU receive funding from Culture Ireland and the number of events we can support in this Open Call will be dependent on the level of funding received.

Full details and application form are available here:CI Open Call Form

The deadline for the application is 18 March.
