May Gathering - May 6, 2018

The May Gathering of the Bloomington Pipers' Society will take place on May 6, 2018! This is the last gathering before the summer season, so come on out.

The meeting's first hour will be headed up by Angus Martin, giving a piobaireachd mini-workshop. The tune which will be reviewed is Clan Campbell's Gathering. Angus will also be providing a crash-course in piobaireachd embellishments, the Piobaireachd Society notation, and piobaireachd construction. Always wanted to learn a bit of piobaireachd, but always have been intimidated, or simply never had the opportunity? Come on out!

The second hour we'll play through the Pipers' Society set tunes which we have already covered since December, and will have the opportunity for individuals and groups to play their performing and competition sets for the summer.

The tunes we'll play through:
  • Skye Boat Song
  • Oft in a Stilly Night
  • Rocking the Baby
  • Dawning of the Day
  • Minstrel Boy
  • Kelly the Boy from Killane
  • Atholl Highlanders (4 parts)
We hope to see you on May 6!

  • St. Thomas Lutheran Church
  • 3800 E 3rd Street (corner of east 3rd and Smith Road)
    • Enter through the west end doors
  • Sunday, May 6th
  • 4:00 - 6:00pm
