About This Bagpiper
I am 44
years of age and started playing the pipes at the age of 8. I currently
reside in Cambridgeshire, since leaving the Army after 22 years service
with The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment).
I own two sets of pipes one set is over two hundred years old, which I
don't play now for obvious reasons and my other set, is a set of
Mccallum's, which is a highly respected brand of this beautiful
instrument. I always use McPhee pipe chanter reeds with Canning drone
reeds which I feel gives the best sound.
always turn out immaculately dressed, as any ex army piper should. I
play all traditional Scottish and Irish tunes. If you choose a
tune that I don't know, I will learn it ,if given enough time!
only cover all of the UK, but also travel all over the world and I'm
flying out to Bahrain in April 2013 to play at an event.
Events & Clients
the years I have played at countless Edinburgh Tattoos, Berlin Tattoos
and have completed tours covering America and Canada playing the pipes.
To date I have played for every member of the current Royal Family apart
from The Duchess of Cambridge. I have also played at the White House for
George Bush senior (he has huge hands). Oh and I also owe HM The Queen
mother £50 (a long story lol).
full Black Watch military number 1 dress, with a choice of Royal Stewart
or Black Watch tartans. I can also wear white tropical dress and evening
dress if required. A few of the options are shown in the photos on this
a bespoke service for weddings and mould my service to the requirements
of the bride and groom. Normally I can play for your guests arriving,
pipe the bride into the ceremony, pipe the bride and groom out of the
ceremony and pipe into the reception. I can also at other points of the
day if required.
offer a bespoke service for funerals, normally I pipe in front of the
hearse, pipe the coffin in and out and sometime play during the
committal. A nice touch is to play outside at the end as people are
piped all over the country and the venues I have played at are far too
many to list here, but Gosfield Hall, Leez Priory, The Armouries London,
Ely Cathedral are just a few, the list is endless.
