The South Wales Uilleann Pipers are pleased to announce

Piping at the Old Bridge
The 7th South Wales Tionol
September 9th/10th
Pontypridd, Rhondda

With Special Guests
Mick O'Brien - uilleann pipes
Emmett Gill - uilleann pipes
Ciara Ni Bhriain - fiddle

Highlights include:

- Piping instruction (all levels) - Saturday
- Fiddle instruction - Saturday
- Gala Concert - Friday
- Afternoon piping recital - Saturday
- 'The Art of Piping' art exhibition
- Lunchtime music featuring 78rpm records of Patsy Touhey, Tom Ennis, Leo Rowsome, Liam Walsh, Michael Coleman, James Morrison and others played on antique wind-up gramophones
- Raffle for a beautiful print of Felix Doran by painter and piper John B Vallely, generously donated by the artist himself to the Tionol
- Evening sessions in local pubs - Friday and Saturday

The Tionol will be based in and around the Pontypridd Museum, a restored Baptist chapel dating from 1861. The chapel sits on the banks of River Taf at the foot of Pontypridd's 'Old Bridge' which, when first completed in 1756, was the longest single span bridge in Europe.

Mark the dates in your calendars. More information to follow soon.

For more information contract ricklines(at)yahoo.com

We have secured discount rates of £55 B/B per night at the local Heritage Park Hotel (about 2 miles/5 minutes from the tionol venue). Just say you are part of the Irish piping festival.

More updates on the South Wales tionol.

Saturday (September 10th) all-day fee for pipers will be £30. This includes

- morning and afternoon tuition with Mick and Emmettt
- buffet lunch on site accompanied by old piping 78s played on 1920s wind-up gramophones
- afternoon piping recital by Mick, Emmett and others
- tea/coffee though the day.

On Saturday will also be holding separate morning (beginner) and afternoon (intermediate/advanced) fiddle classes by Ciara for £12 each class.

Admission to the Friday night concert (September 9th) will be £7 at the door.

Popped into the Pontypridd Museum this week, site of the Tionol and concert. The main museum area is looking fantastic and will be great for the concert.
