Na Píobairí Uilleann will again be holding a co-ordinated International Uilleann Piping Day on Saturday, October 20, 2012 to raise awareness of the instrument around the world. The first such event last year saw events in 20 locations world-wide and we are hoping on build on that in 2012. The idea behind the day is that individuals or groups of pipers in locations around the globe organise a small event such as a recital or workshop in a local public venue and it would be great to see events in as many countries and locations as possible.
International Uilleann Piping Day gives you the opportunity to raise awareness of the uilleann pipes and activities in your locality and is also a great excuse to have an enjoyable musical gathering.
Get your pipes out and get involved....
. As a first step please let us know if you are interested in getting involved with other pipers in your locality or country or if you have suggestions for this event, please notify us, as soon as possible, by contacting
