I am a piper with over 40 year’s experience. I have played in several pipe bands (Seaforth Highlanders of Canada and the Pipes and Drums of the 2nd and 3rd Battalions Royal Canadian Regiment being the most famous) and am fully aware of ‘piping protocols’ for weddings and funerals.

I can provide my services in a variety of degree of formality, from Full Dress to Casual.

In addition to the Great Highland Bagpipe, I play Border Pipes in ‘A’, and both Scottish – and Northumbrian Smallpipes. These latter three instruments are part of a ‘resurrected tradition’ of Chamber and Dance music of the Anglo-Scots Border country. They have a wonderful tone, their volume is perfect for playing indoors, and I have a steadily-growing repertoire of ‘Early’ Dance and Art music of the Border Idiom.
