 Spanish Peaks Piping & Harp Retreats - Celebrate the Season

A mini-workshop and tune session to celebrate Christmas
Saturday, December 19, 2020 via Zoom

We welcome you to join us for an evening of merriment including a mini harp and smallpipe workshop, happy hour (with homemade cookies for the first 20 registrants!), and a holiday tune session. Pipers Tim Cummings and Rosalind Buda  (joined by Jerry O'Sullivan) along with harper Kelly Brzozowski, will lead a tune review workshop before everyone joins in for a full session of carols, Christmas tunes, and music of the season. Tunes will be provided in advance via Dropbox (PDF and audio recordings), with plenty of time to learn ahead. The workshop and session will be held via Zoom with a link sent out the day of the event. For added cheer, the dropbox folder will also include favorite traditional recipes from Scotland, Ireland, Wales, and more provided by our instructors.

Uilleann pipers! Stay tuned for news concerning a workshop for uilleann pipers. Contact Dirk Mewes ([email protected])

As an added benefit, Rosalind Buda and Kelly Brzozowski will offer short lessons at a discounted rate for anyone who would like help with the tunes. Please contact the instructors individually for rates and availability.

*Returns: We want you to be completely satisfied with your instrument, no questions asked. The Harp Connection offers a 30-day return policy on lever harps and lap harps purchased from our store (except special orders). To be eligible for return, the harp must be in the same condition as when we shipped it to you and it must be returned with all accessories such as tuning keys and books. In the event of a return, you will be responsible for return freight to our Rowley, Massachusetts location. Custom-ordered harps may not be returnable, depending on the requirements of the factory; call us with specific questions about special order returns. Pedal harps can only be returned upon approval of the manufacturer and a 20% return fee will typically apply. We update our web site daily, however all harps are subject to prior sale.
