Armagh Pipers Club was founded in 1966, and has just celebrated 48 years of musical activity in the Armagh area. Dedicated to the development of traditional music, the Club has achieved worldwide acclaim, particularly for its innovative music education programme. APC has been in the forefront of producing teaching materials since the 1970s. Initially set up to promote the playing of uilleann pipes, the Club now caters for a wide range of instrumental music as well as singing. The club recently opened Áras na bPíobairí a dedicated club premises with an auditorium, pipe making workshop, archive, exhibition space and a visitors reception area. Situated right in the centre of Armagh it has enabled the club to add to it’s repertoire of classes including a new highland piping class due to commence in September 2014.
