The Northeast Tionól

Held every year since 1986, the Northeast Tionól is a weekend of classes, workshops, and concerts focusing on the Irish uilleann pipes and fiddle.

The 2017 Northeast Tionól will be held on October 13-16, 2017, at Gavin’s Resort in East Durham, New York.

Online registration for the 2017 Northeast Tionól is now closed

You can still register on-site, for $190. Check out the Details page first to learn about our format and workshops this year.

A few important changes for this year:

  1. We’ll have two instructor concerts this year: one Friday night and one Saturday night.
  2. All classes will take place on Saturday this year, Sunday morning will be free time, and workshops will take place Sunday afternoon.
  3. Reedmaking will start with a drop-in clinic on Saturday morning and then an open workshop (meaning you don’t have to pre-register for the reedmaking workshop if you’re attending the tionól) on Saturday afternoon and Sunday afternoon.
