September 27th – 29th, 2013
The Great Northern Irish Pipers Club, the upper Midwest U.S.’s premier uilleann piping association, is pleased to announce that internationally acclaimed performing artists Joey Abarta, Patrick Cannady, and Patrick D’Arcy will be the featured clinicians for its 2013 Tionól, to be held from Friday 27 September through Sunday 29 September 2013 at The Celtic Junction in St. Paul, Minnesota (836 Prior Avenue, 55104).
The GNIPC 2013 Tionól will feature an innovative and exciting new format: every attendee will be guaranteed private instruction from visiting artists, in addition to group sessions that will be led by the GNIPC’s senior pipers. And, of course, visiting artists will perform on Saturday evening (7:30 pm on 9/28/2013) in a GNIPC 2013 Tionól Concert, which will be free for Tionól attendees and open to the general public.
