Piping Legends to perform at Tyrone Pipers Day

29 August 2018

Two piping legends, Ireland’s Paddy Keenan and Scotland's Fred Morrison will be performing as part of Tyrone Pipers Day on Saturday 8th September at the Alley Theatre, Strabane. 

A full afternoon of workshops and masterclasses followed by an evening concert with these two piping stars.

The Alley Theatre will be alive with the sounds of pipes from 2pm – 5pm with a piping master class by Fred Morrison, while local uilleann pipe maker Martin Gallen from Banba Pipes will be facilitating a ‘Reed Making Workshop’ in the Alley Theatre Gallery.  In the Alley Café Area Noel Devine will be hosting a Uilleann Piping Taster Session.

All of the workshops are free and a must for anyone who wants to learn more or progress their abilities. These events will follow up with an evening concert in the Alley auditorium at 8pm with Fred Morrison and Paddy Keenan.

The duo are expected to blow up a storm with an exuberant pairing of Irish Uilleann and Scottish bellows-blown pipes. Come along and enjoy this wonderful evening filled with the sound of Uilleann and Highland Pipes.
