...... a Piper for all occasions

PIPING BACKGROUND

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I've been playing the pipes for over 27 years now, during which time, I've been fortunate to play at numerous events throughout the world and the United Kingdom

 

Countries I've played in have included France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, USA, St Lucia, Czech Republic, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Channel Islands of Jersey, Guernsey and Sark

 

I've also had the opportunity to pipe throughout most of the UK, including some of the most beautiful islands -  from the Isles of Scilly, Isle of Man, Anglesey, Northern Ireland through to Islay, Jura, Mull, Coll, Tiree, Skye, out westwards to Lewis, Harris, Uist, and north up to the Orkney and Shetland Islands 

 

The highlight of my piping career to date, is playing at the 2008 Edinburgh Military Tattoo - I was privileged to be attached to The Royal Highland Fusiliers, 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Scotland (2 SCOTS) for the duration of the performances

Having attended the Tattoo as a spectator, on a regular basis over the last thirty years,  it really was an honour and a dream come true to march over the castle drawbridge and onto the esplanade every night!!!

 

As a member of the Reserve Forces, I am regularly called upon to play at Regimental Mess Dinners, Memorial Services, etc for both Regular and Reserve units 

 

Other piping highlights have included playing before the Duke of Edinburgh on his 70th birthday parade, in Hyde Park in 1991, and performing at my own wedding, in a beautiful Scottish castle!!!
