The Great Northern Irish Pipers Club, the upper Midwest U.S.’s premier uilleann piping association, is pleased to announce that internationally acclaimed performing artists Joey Abarta, Patrick D’Arcy, and Patrick Cannady will be the featured clinicians for its 2013 Tionól, to be held from Friday 27 September through Sunday 29 September 2013 in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The GNIPC 2013 Tionól will feature an innovative and exciting new format: every attendee will be guaranteed private instruction from visiting artists, in addition to group sessions that will be led by the GNIPC’s senior pipers. And, of course, visiting artists will perform on Saturday evening in a GNIPC 2013 Tionól Concert, which will be free for Tionól attendees and open to the general public.

So, save those dates (Sept. 27-29)! As more details become available (such as how to register), we’ll announce them via email, Facebook, and of course here.
