Posted on behalf of Ernie Shultis:

The Saugerties Piping Weekend is scheduled this year for April 20-23, 2007 and will once again be held at St. Joseph’s Villa/Falling Waters in friendly Saugerties, New York.

We always have a huge variety of bagpipes show up at this event: Northumbrian Smallpipes, Scottish Smallpipes, Uilleann Pipes, Border Pipes, Cornish Pipes, Spanish Gaitas, Breton Binous, etc. In addition to pipes any other acoustic musical instruments are welcome. In the past we’ve had harp, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, tin whistle, ukulele, bodhran, didgeridoo and more! Also feel free to bring your audio/video recorders and cameras.

Costs

The cost for the entire weekend is $210 for Friday through Monday room and board. That includes dinner on Friday, three meals on Saturday and Sunday and a continental breakfast and brunch on Monday. If you can’t stay until Monday, then the cost from Friday through Sunday afternoon is $140. Please send a $25.00 non-refundable deposit before April 15, 2007 to:Ernie Shultis, 4055 Rt. 32, Saugerties, NY 12477.
