Following on from the success of the Highland Bagpipe and Drumming Tuition held in 2015, Drumlough Highland Pipe Band has announced that it is holding further Bagpipe and Drumming tuition classes again during 2016.

The Highland Bagpipe Tuition will run every Tuesday night for a period of 20 weeks beginning on Tuesday 2nd February 2016.

The Drumming Tuition will also run for a period of 20 weeks on Wednesday nights, beginning on Wednesday 3rd February.

These will both take place in Drumlough Orange Hall (Bog Road, Rathfriland) from 7:30pm to 9:30pm each night.

A spokesperson for the band said: “We have found that through our previous year’s tuition the interest in Ulster-Scots music and tradition is continuing to grow in the local area and that is why we are so pleased to be able to provide this service again and we would welcome anyone interested to come along.

This activity has been made possible by the support of the Ulster-Scots Agency and therefore, as in previous years, the cost to the participants has been kept to a minimum of 50p per night because of this support.

The tuition classes are open to all and will be aimed at providing a structured program of learning through experiences tutors to new learners and also those wishing to improve on any basic skills they may already have.”
