Shwmae!

For those interested, I'm organising a Welsh Bagpipes and Pibgorn Day in Ystradgynlais on October 14th. It's at a local scout building, with several rooms and a wonderful old hall.. There are also beds and bunks available in the Hall, as well as a fully-equipped kitchen. It's a fabulous building at the top end of the Tawe Valley in South Wales. Other accomodation is available locally. There may well be a session on the previous Friday, and I'm working on some things for Sunday too.

There will be workshops and sessions: the history of pipes in Wales; building a repertoire; tunes we should all know; taster sessions on Weish pipes and pibgorn; absolute beginners whistle. Probably more!

We'll only charge enough to cover costs. I'm not applying for grants or paying anyone- this is a chance for like-minded people to get together, share their experiences and insights, and play tunes. There will be a session/tmpath/noson lawen in the evening.

If you already play, or are just curious, here's your chance!

Shwmae! Things are looking good. I'm pleased that fine pibgorn player and maker Gafin Morgan is going to be present to demonstrate his instruments. This will will be a great day of tunes and companionship. Come over :-)
