About this Event

In addition to the taster sessions there are uilleann pipe classes for beginners and intermediate/advanced players from 10 – 18 years of age. Classes will be taught by local piper Pádraig Butler and by Nollaig Mac Cárthaigh of Na Píobairí Uilleann.

Music Generation Kilkenny is managed by Kilkenny Music Education Partnership, a partnership between Kilkenny and Carlow Education and Training Board and Kilkenny County Council under the leadership of Music Development officer Sinead Blanchfield.

Na Píobairí Uilleann is the society of uilleann pipers founded to promote the playing, the making, and the teaching of the instrument. Now, fifty-two years later, Na Píobairí Uilleann is a thriving arts organisation with thousands of members worldwide, dedicated to Sharing the Sound of Ireland through Access, Education, Performance and Preservation, delivered through the organisation’s commitment to excellence in values, governance and processes. Na Píobairí Uilleann provides a regular programme of piping tuition, pipemaking tuition, music performances and publications, with a dedicated website for uilleann pipers and traditional music lovers in Ireland and beyond.
