Piper' s Hut

Piper's Hut was created in 2005, though the idea had existed for some time. I had worked backstage or in patron-facing roles at Celtic shows and festivals in other communities in which I had lived. After moving to Champaign I was treated to a couple of shows by big names that were based in the Midwest and were touring regionally. I wanted more.

As of this writing, fourteen years and more than 110 shows have come and gone. I have had an amazing time getting to meet the lovely people in my community who have supported the shows over the years as well as meeting the incredibly talented Artists who have come to this community.

At the moment I am only putting on house concerts. These are unplugged (un-amplified) concerts in my home near downtown Champaign, IL. We can get upwards of 25 people in and can usually accommodate a few more in a pinch.

If you are interested in attending a show please consider signing up for the mailing list. Other wise send mail to: pipers.hut@gmail.com

Artists/Agents

I am mainly interested in very traditional "Pure Drop" Celtic music. I have had mostly trad Irish acts with a few Scottish and even a couple less-specific folk acts. I would welcome acts from the other Celtic music traditions.

I am in Champaign, Illinois, USA. This is roughly: 2 hours due West of Indianapolis, Indiana; 2+ hours due South of Chicago; and around 3.5 hours Northeast of St Louis. The community is small although it hosts the largest campus of the University of Illinois.

I offer small, unplugged house concerts at this time.
