We are delighted to inform you that there are many Tionols offered around North America throughout the year. These are the music weeks/weekends in which a piper can get face-to-face instruction. You’ll find attending these events is an amazing experience not only from the instruction that you get from teachers, but the interactions with other pipers and musicians. It’s a great way to connect with the Uilleann Piping “tribe”. We’ve separated out the events according to when they usually happen in the calendar year with a link to each. If you know of any changes or additions to this list, please contact us!
