Autumn Smallpipe Program 2015
Stay “tuned” for information on the 2015 Smallpipe Program!
The Celtic Arts Foundation is pleased to present this workshop for the fifth consecutive year! The workshop will be at the Littlefield Celtic Center in Mount Vernon, WA on October 1-4, 2015. We will also be offering some fiddle events that will be held in conjunction with the Smallpipe program – details will be announced soon.
We are happy to announce that Fred Morrison will be our piping instructor for this year’s Autumn Smallpipe program! We have totally revamped (and we hope greatly simplified!) our registration process, and encourage students to sign up ASAP after the forms become available on August 1st, as space is limited!
A gold medal-winning Highland Piper, Fred is widely regarded as one of the top bellows-blown Reelpipe players in the world. His music is steeped in the traditions of his South Uist heritage, but influenced by diverse and surprising sources such as bluegrass to name one. Highland pipes, Uileann pipes, low whistles, Smallpipes or Reelpipes – Fred can do it all, and his teaching approach is energetic, patient and most of all fun! Here’s a link to Fred’s website to learn more. Fred will certainly make this an incredible musical experience for all who can participate.
Program Location – Littlefield Celtic Center
The Autumn Smallpipe Workshop is being held for the first time at our Littlefield Celtic Center in Mount Vernon, Washington. This stunning new venue has a number of amenities and great educational aids to help you get the most from your workshop. Small seminar class sizes are a hallmark of programs offered by the Celtic Arts Foundation. We’re very mindful of the benefits of having access to accomplished and experienced instructors. This year, we’ve arranged to have students arrive on Thursday evening. That gives us a complete and full day for instruction on Friday, and Saturday, and most of Sunday.
