The South Wales Uilleann Pipers are pleased to announce our 2017 tionol

Piping at the Old Bridge
The 8th South Wales Tionol
September 29th/30th 2017

With Special Guests
Martin Nolan
Becky Tayor

Highlights include:

- Piping instruction (beginner, intermediate and advanced levels)
- Fiddle instruction (teacher TBC)
- Gala Concert
- Afternoon piping recital/piper's chair
- Lunchtime music featuring 78rpm records of Patsy Touhey, Tom Ennis, Leo Rowsome, Liam Walsh and others played on antique wind-up gramophones
- Evening sessions in local pubs
- Raffle

The Tionol will be based in and around the Pontypridd Museum, a restored Baptist chapel dating from 1861. The chapel sits on the banks of River Taf at the foot of Pontypridd's 'Old Bridge' which, when first completed in 1756, was the longest single span bridge in Europe.

Watch this video for highlights of our 2016 tionol.

Mark the dates in your calendars. More information to follow soon. Also follow us on Facebook or Twitter for updates.

Just an update on tionol planning.

Once again we will use The Heritage Park Hotel as our recommended accommodations. The hotel is about a 5 minute drive/taxi ride from the museum where the tionol will be held. The hotel has agreed a special rate of £50 B&B per night for tionol participants. Just call the reservations desk at 01443 687057 (rather than go through the website) and mention that you are there for the Irish bagpipes festival and they will give you this reduced rate. The final session on Saturday night will also be held at the hotel.

We are also pleased to announce that Mikey Kenney from Liverpool will teach the fiddle classes, as well as perform at the concert.
