If you’ve ever been interested in learning the Uilleann pipes, then this is a session for you!
We are a Manchester based music organisation called North West Uilleann Pipers and have been in existence for approx 20 years. Our main aims as an organisation are: to promote the playing and maintenance of the uilleann pipes; to hold regular workshops where good teaching and pipe maintenance are accessible; to encourage young people to take up the pipes; to showcase the pipes by holding regular concerts involving well-known and respected pipers; to make available online resources to pipers and to forge links with other like-minded organisations.
We hold monthly meetings where short lessons are available with one of our experienced teachers. For those who are wanting to try out the uilleann pipes we also have a practice set loan scheme. Ask us for more details. We have a Facebook page ’North West Uilleann Pipers’ where you will find a bit more information as well as a website ’NWUP” (currently being updated). Our teachers are volunteers who don’t get paid but we charge £3 for classes to cover costs of room hire.
