Welcome to the first gathering of 2017! This gathering is host to several firsts for the Bloomington Pipers’ Society:
- We’re now gathering on the 4th Sunday of the month
- We’re now gathering at St. Thomas Lutheran Church
- We’re now an official entity (Bloomington Pipers’ Society, Inc.)
- We’re hosting our first Uilleann piper at a gathering
- We also hope that you’ll join us for your first time at a Pipers’ Society gathering!
Our guest on the Uilleann pipes this month is Siddharth Bhaskar. Siddharth is a visiting professor of Mathematics at IU and Irish musician. He started on the tin whistle at the age of 13 then started learning the Uilleann pipes in Los Angeles at the age of 22. His training began with the Southern California Uilleann Pipers Club. We’re glad that he will be introducing the Uilleann pipes to us here in Bloomington.
Please plan to join us:
- Sunday, January 22nd
- 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
- St. Thomas Lutheran Church
- 3800 E. 3rd Street (3rd and Smith Road)
