WEST BORDER PIPING WEEKEND 21-23 Oct 2011

The first Border Piping Residential Weekend to be held under the aegis of The William Dixon Foundation is scheduled to take place from 4:00 pm Friday 21 Oct to 4:00 pm Sunday 23 Oct in a beautiful setting just outside the Border town of Langholm.

Workshops will be hands-on throughout and will combine structured learning with informal playing. In keeping with our location we will step sideways from the Dixon repertoire and focus on some great West Border tunes. While the weekend is intended primarily for players of Border pipes and Scottish smallpipes (in A) players of other compatible instruments will be most welcome. The cost including workshops, meals and accommodation is £200.

For further details or to reserve a place email theborderpiper(at)gmail(dot)com. You will be sent more information, a simple short questionnaire and, nearer the date, details of the music we will be working on. If you have already registered an interest there is no need to write again.

The Weekend is looking to be a good one. One of our number has unfortunately had to withdraw due to illness, so if anyone would like to join us at such short notice we will consider a price reduction. Enquiries to theborderpiper(at)gmail(dot)com

Thank you
