International Uilleann Piping Day 2020

November 7 @ 12:01 am - 11:59 pm

International Uilleann Piping Day 2020 takes place on Saturday 7nd November. This will be the tenth year of the event. In 2019 over 60 events took place worldwide and it’s a great reason to gather local pipers together and also a great opportunity to introduce people to the instrument. Events can take any format, piping performances, talks about the pipes, “try the pipes” events or workshops. The only request we make is that your event is open to the public.
If you are holding an event or would be interested in holding an event, please contact info@pipers.ie.

  • cutting a bag to tie-in a blow pipe
  • a systematic approach to leak detection and repair

Participants should send, in advance, any queries, faults, or problems that they might like covered when they make their application for a place on the course. They should have their own pipes to hand when logging in to the workshop.
