The Manchester Group of Northumbrian Pipers invite you to join us for our 
monthly 'play togethers', we have pipers who combine the afternoon with visits 
to relatives in the area and pipers who turn up occasionally. It's all very 
informal,we play in a group everyone gets the chance to pick the next tune and 
when the good players pick a difficult one people like me stop at the end of 
bar two, Tom Mullen keeps us in time and people talk about the bits of their 
pipes that aren't working properly. Plus cup of tea and a biscuit.
The only thing guaranteed is that you will be most welcome.

Meetings are held at the Cheadle Hulme Baptist Church hall from 1430 to1730 and 
the next three are 14th October, 4th November, 2nd December 2006.

[NSP] Manchester Pipers' Group - Pipers' Day

2007-07-25 Thread Neil Tavernor
Tom Mullen and Ron Blake founded Manchester Pipers' Group more than 30 years 
ago and the group has held an annual Pipers' day for about 25 years. I am told 
( as a recent arrival on the scene) that the day and particularly the evening 
concert has over all those years acquired a name as a relaxed and enjoyable day 
out. I've certainly enjoyed the last few years.
Due to changing circumstances the 2006 concert was restricted to the daytime 
with only a very short after tea concert. The 2007 concert has had to be moved 
to a new venue ( the one the group now use for their regular monthly meetings) 
and for the first pipers' day in the new venue we are repeating the daytime 
only formatt. BUT look at the tutor line-up, what a formidable trio of talent.
The members of the Manchester Pipers' Group are very keen to know what support 
there is for a return to the 2100 hrs finish with a proper evening concert and 
anything else you would like to see included in the day's programme.
As we all know, but I'll say it anyway, the success of a pipers' day, with 
regard to its viability, can only be measured in terms of the number of pipers 
that attend. So thinkig ahead to next year we need to make the 2008 day one 
that will change the 'might attends' into 'will attends'.
So please let us know your thoughts; contact Malcolm Craven, still a driving 
force in the Manchester Group even though he has retreated from the North West 
Frontier back to home ground in Northumberland or contact Margaret Watt who is 
also taking bookings for the 2007 Pipers' Day e-mail [EMAIL PROTECTED] or me, 
the e-mail arm of Tom Mullen or Tom himself by phone. BUT better still come to 
the 2007 Pipers Day on 8th September and tell us then.
Regards 
Neil Tavernor

Dear Neil,

 

Many thanks for the response.  I appreciate your comments, and can only thank 
you for making the effort you are doing, which is appreciated.

 

The event takes place at Gnosall Community Centre and we have said on the 
tickets that it will start at 8.00 and finish at 11.30.

 

In this age of SAT Nav's and the internet if I give you my post code it may 
help as Gnosall is quite a small village with the Community Centre being on the 
High Street.  ST20 0QS.

 

We would provide a meal (Hog Roast + with a few bits of Northumberland) for 
anyone who could attend and guests, say up to four, and we would pay for travel 
expenses (within reason - I'm an accountant (J).  We would envisage having the 
meal, and then having an introduction to the pipes and the playing of a couple 
of pieces, after the meal, with the band taking over after that with a Ceilidh .

 

We are not looking for a professional musician, but someone who can introduce 
us to this Northumbrian instrument.   We would just appreciate seeing it and 
hearing it live. Everyone we have mentioned it too have said wow it would be 
great to hear it played.

 

Again, many thanks for taking this on board, even if nothing comes of it, I 
appreciate the fact that you are interested.

 

Kind regards

 

Frank Hogarth.

Hello, whilst all the people involved in the Manchester group love the pipes, 
very few ever play publicly, although a group of ten or twelve have played on 
three or four occasions (church fair, charity fund raise etc.). However I will 
do what I can to help and that is:

e-mail to the members of the Manchester group who use e-mail.

discuss at the next group meeting (a week on Sat).

send it to an interenet site used as a forum by a wider group of northumbrian 
pipers.

But first a few more details please. 6th June is a Friday but what time, venue 
(near Birmingham?), parking, availabilty of food if distance travelling 
involved and anything else you can think of.

  Dear Mr Tavernor,

   

  I have been given your e-mail, by Gordan Greenley, and I wonder if you are 
are able to help.

   

  I do wonder if it is too far for someone to come, bearing in mind it would 
only be for a small part of the evening.

   

  My problem is that for me the pipes are an essential part of Northumberland, 
and would just set the overall tone for the evening, and everyone who we have 
told that we were hoping to have a Northumbrian piper player there were 
absolutely delighted.

   

  I suppose we just want to hear, what for a lot of people is an instrument 
they don't get to hear very often.

  Hi everyone,



  I have just listened to Andy May's new CD Happy Hours and have to say
  that it is fantastic. I think Andy has actually had the CDs for a
  little while, but it doesn't seem to have had much publicity yet, so
  thought anyone who hasn't heard about it yet might like to know.



  There's some lovely stuff on it - everything from Peacock to Hill to
  some of Andy's compositions and  a great set of Galician tunes. There
  are also some great guests on it - including Andrew Davison playing on
  a duet track which culminates in the wonderful Glasgow City Police
  Band. The title track Happy Hours has much more of a band feel to it
   has great lift  life. Of course Andy's playing itself is as
  fantastic as always.



  Perhaps he can send an email  let everyone know where to buy it!

2) are proxy votes allowed, or is it by  members present? 


To date, it has always been members present.

3) is there a fixed counting process e.g. secret

Previous presidential elections have been by popular acclamation.

4) is there a fixed list of candidates

See (1). Colin was trying to persuade the committee to open the
