I have been playing the bagpipes for over 30 years and started when I was 9 years old. I am a former member of the world famous pipes and drums of the 1st Battalion The Black Watch and have travelled all over the world with them. As an army piper I have taken part in many high profile events, the highlights of those events would be the playing for the Royal family and various other heads of state at official functions, the Edinburgh military tattoo, North American tour and the hand over of Hong Kong. During my time as an Army piper I passed the class 1 pipers course which is a pre requisit for being put forward for the army Pipe Majors course. I have always been involoved with competition bands either as a band member or leader, I have played at most of the official major championships, including the World pipe band championships, the European championships and the British championships. I have also been the North West England solo piping champion. My experience gained in these events allows me to provide a professional service to any event type. Having experienced this high level of performance, I am able to offer a professional service from the standard of turn out to quality of playing for your event.
