Welcome to The Pipers’ Gathering, North America’s most comprehensive alternative bagpipe event!

Registration Opens on March 17th!  Watch for instructor announcements very soon!

The 2016 Pipers’ Gathering will take place  August 19 – 21, 2016 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”. Complementary instruments are also featured, because really the point is to play well with others. 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 our instructors list to be finalized, listen to recordings from our 2014 & 2015 concerts!

A message from Maine Pipes & Fiddle:

Hello Folks!
We're getting faculty and venue lined up for the next Maine Pipes and Fiddle. We've got Ben and Anita lined up to teach again this year. They are deep into touring to promote their new CD, "A Day at the Lake", and we're finalizing details on at least two other instructors, but maybe three or more...

We're zeroing in on the weekend dates, either May 20-22 or June 3-5. So keep those dates open and we'll let you know soon! Find out more here: http://mainepipesandfiddle.com

David GillettHow inspiring to have such a non-traditional name be the Traditional champion! And I'll bet he has a fully authentic Glasgow accent! (He's d**ned good into the bargain!)
