Connecticut Piping and Drumming Workshop
*Cancelled for 2021*
Enders Island, Mystic, CT
March 4, 2021 Update:
Like many other piping and drumming events this year, the CT Piping and Drumming Workshop has decided to cancel the 2021 workshop due to the pandemic. The health and safety of our instructors and participants (many of whom travel from other states and countries!) is our highest priority, and we hope to be back in 2022, at our NEW location of Enders Island in Mystic, CT!
THANK YOU to our 2020 sponsors and supporting organizations: the Round Hill Highland Games, St. Andrew's Society of Connecticut, the NH Scot Fund, The Piper's Hut, and the St. Edmund's Pipes and Drums. Many thanks to these organizations for supporting and promoting the Scottish Arts in Connecticut, and for their time, effort, and and generosity to the workshop!
