Welcome to the NZUPA Homepage!
A more fully featured site is under development.
All pipers and aspiring pipers are welcome to join the community and fellowship of NZ pipers.
Want to learn the pipes?
We can help you get started by offering a practice instrument for hire, and tuition, where possible from a member near you. We can advise on the best way to go about obtaining your own set of pipes (and the pitfalls to avoid).
Please contact Greg Waite by email.
26th Annual Tionol, Nelson, 3–5th June (Queen’s Birthday weekend).
As we have done for the past few years, we hold the Tionol in association with Ceol Aneas, the Irish music festival held annually in Nelson.
The pipers rent a house in which to hold classes and workshops of our own.
