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.
