The tunes of the Munster Pipers have echoed down through the ages, an eloquent testimony to the talents and dedication of some exceptional musicians, and a rich source of inspiration to this new generation of pipers.
The village of Glengarriff in West Cork will hold it’s 9th Piping Festival this year from Thursday 18th to Sunday 21st June 2020.
It honours the memory of Glengarriff resident and renowned piper Jim Dowling, who embodied the best of the areas unique musical tradition.
Jim was born and raised in Dublin and was one of a select band of young musicians who trained with the legendary piper Leo Rowsome at a time when traditional music was confined to the back streets and the kitchens. But many people had begun to feel that there was a pressing need for a national organisation to promote Ireland’s unique musical culture. And so, in 1951 at the Dublin Pipers Club headquarters, the first standing Committee of Cumann Ceoltóirí na hÉireann was elected.
The festival can’t wait once again, to welcome you all to Glengarriff to enjoy with them, a weekend of uninhibited traditional Irish music, craic, food and fun and above all else the unique sound of the Uilleann Pipes which will light up the village!
