Spanish Peaks Piping Retreat

jerry_o_sullivanDates: September 23-25, 2016
Location: La Veta, Colorado

The 2016 Spanish Peaks Piping Retreat is taking shape! We’re really excited to announce that we will focus on bellows-blown smallpipes (or reel pipes) for 2016. We’re the only piping retreat in the Rocky Mountain region to do so. If you’re a fan of bellows-blown smallpipes or border pipes, this is the place to be. Building on last year’s piping retreat, we’ll expand this year and will have 2 instructors so we can work with pipers of different abilities.

Spanish Peaks Harp Retreat

Harp RetreatDates: September 23-25, 2016
Location: Walsenburg, Colorado

The Spanish Peaks Harp Retreat offers several days of multi-level harp workshops and instruction. Harp events are set in the midst of a full Celtic Festival in Southeast Colorado. Our event offers a small intimate setting for 5-10 hours per class or workshop and a very low pupil to teacher ratio provides opportunities to connect with each other and with the instructors. Harp events are under one roof, Friday and Saturday evening festival concerts are within walking distance and we are 20 minutes from La Veta where the Harp Circle plays and many of the festival workshops are held.
