Good Piping Film

20Dec

Hi Dubliners!

You are cordially invited on Friday, January 4th to a screening of Good Piping, a feature documentary film on Irish musicians playing Ireland’s most enigmatic instrument, the uilleann pipes. “This rare, ancient bagpipe may occasionally be seen in a pub or at a festival, but as a historical soloist, leading dances and harrowing souls, the instrument remains a fleeting character, even in its native Ireland” (Na Píobairí, 2002). Good Piping has only screened twice in Ireland – once at the IFI and once in Miltown during Willie Week. The film itself has been a “fleeting character” and we are delighted to announce its recent release on DVD & Blu-ray – please go to: www.GoodPipingFilm.com for more info. We are bringing the film back to Ireland for a series of screenings in 2019 to celebrate the release. This will be the lone screening in Dublin and it’s set to be a fun one!

The screening will be at The Sugar Club on Leeson and is kindly sponsored by Foras na Gaeilge. Doors open at 7.30 p.m. and we’ll have a trio of young traditional musicians (TBA) playing us in. Come and have a drink before and enjoy the music. DVD’s/Blu-ray & Posters will be for sale throughout the night. Around 8:15pm we will begin seating and the film will go on at 8:30pm sharp. The director and cast will be in attendance for a Q&A after the movie. And of course, there’ll be an After Seisún with musicians at the club or a nearby pub.
