In celebration of our 10th tionol, the South Wales Uilleann Pipers are proud to welcome back to the Rhondda Valleys two long-time friends of the club, and past tionol guests, Mick O’Brien and Gay McKeon.

Piping at the Old Bridge
The 10th South Wales Tionol
September 6th/7th 2019
Pontypridd Museum, Pontypridd

With Special Guests
Mick O’Brien (uilleann pipes)
Gay McKeon (uilleann pipes)
Jacqui Martin (fiddle)
Jason Rouse (tin whistle)

Highlights include:

- Opening Concert Friday Night with Mick, Gay, Jacqui and other musicians
- Piping instruction all-day Saturday (beginner and improver levels)
- Fiddle instruction all-day Saturdaay (beginner and improver levels)
- Whistle instruction all-day Saturday (beginner and improver levels)

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. Also follow us on Facebook or Twitter for updates.
