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 2014 Northeast Tionól will be held on October 17-20, 2014, at Gavin’s Resort in East Durham, New York.

Registration is now open! We’re limiting most workshops to 10 participants in order to give everyone a chance for more individual attention, so register early! You’ll get a discount for early registration until August 15.

Note that we’ve posted a Roommates and Transportation Sharing notice on our blog; if you’re looking for a roommate or a lift to the tionól, please post a comment to the blog post.
