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.
