Spielkurs Pipenbock is an annual event in Northern Germany which features workshops on traditional instruments, music and dance - including two bagpipe courses:• half-closed pipes and Swedish bagpipes aka säckpipa.The main attraction for me was the chance of being taught by Swedish riksspelman Olle Gällmo, so I made the trip in 2018.• And went back again last year, and will be going again in November 2020! The Pipenbock weekend is a full-on experience, packed with tuition, concerts and dancing.
