The Pipers’ Gathering  takes place in August at Wisdom House in Litchfield, CT.  This annual event welcomes newcomers and advanced players alike, with both traditional bellows-blown pipes and instruments a little “outside the box”.

World-class instructors, lots of hours of instruction/workshops and a relaxed setting makes this a “pipers camp” weekend not to be missed.

While waiting for the 2017 Pipers’ Gathering, listen to recordings from our 2014, 2015 & 2016 concerts!

New recordings from Gordon Mooney!
This is a track from my recent album on Bandcamp "Autumn Airs". I play it on a G Scottish Smallpipe and a C whistle staying true both to the original music and key. By using the whistle to play the written melody and the pipes duetting this avoids compressing the melody into eight notes as others have done. The Album 'Autumn Airs" is available at:-
