William Kennedy Piping Festival
The WKPF is an international festival of mainly bagpipe-based traditional music. Organised as a one-off event by Armagh Pipers Club in 1994, as part of a cross-community “Armagh Together” series of events, the Festival was such a success that it was reprised in 1995, and then became a regular annual fixture. A total of 26 festivals took place up to 2019, drawing into Armagh a vast array of internationally renowned musicians, and aficionados from all over the world. It is one of the longest-running festivals of its kind in the world of piping.
This years event features:
The Goodman Trio (Mick O’Brien, Aoife Ní Bhriain & Emer Mayock), Louise Mulcahy, Pádraig McGovern, Cillian Vallely, Tiarnán Ó Duinnchinn & Laoise Kelly, Alana MacInnes (Isle of Uist), José Manuel Tejedor (Asturias), Diane Cannon, Mike Katz (USA), Christy Leahy, Sébastien Lagrange & Quentin Millet (Morvan).
