Hire A Bagpiper
I have been playing the bagpipes for over 20 years and have performed at countless public and private events including weddings, parties, Burns suppers, funerals, corporate dinners and even on stage at Sheffield Arena for the IIFA (Bollywood Awards) . I have played with various pipe bands including the Seaforth Highlanders (Mansfield), Ashbourne Pipes and Drums, Nottingham Police and I currently compete in grade 3b with The Manchester Phoenix Pipe Band .
I have appeared in several newspapers in Yorkshire and Derbyshire. I have been interviewed on Radio Sheffield and Sheffield Live and have appeared playing at weddings on the ITV series ‘The Lakes’ and also ‘The Dales’. I teach the bagpipes to private students and I am also the official Duke of Edinburgh bagpipe tutor at The Army Foundation College in Harrogate.
I am available to hire for public and private events. I play a beautiful set of Macmurchie bagpipes and can also offer Scottish smallpipes for more confined venues. My dress code is full ceremonial ‘No.1’ dress (with American Universal or Royal Stewart tartan) . Other options include highland day wear (Argyll jacket, shirt, tie, sporran, kilt, etc) or highland evening wear (Bonnie Prince Charlie jacket, dress shirt, bow tie, kilt, sporran, etc). I offer a choice of tartans including Royal Stewart (red), American Universal (blue), Hamilton Gray, Black Watch and my own family tartan Brown.
I currently play and compete in Grade 3b with Manchester Phoenix Pipes and Drums. The band are available to hire as a full band or a mini band.
