WELCOME

01 WELCOME

Thankyou for visiting my website. I am a bagpiper based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. I have been playing the bagpipes for nearly 20 years. I was taught in my home town of Chesterfield by ex Pipe Major Alec MaClean. I have been a member of the Seaforth Highlanders pipe band based near Mansfield, performed in Germany with the Nottingham Police Pipe Band and competed for several years  with the Ashbourne Pipes and Drums in grades 3 and 4.

I have performed at countless weddings, birthday parties, funerals, etc and have appeared in several newspapers in Yorkshire and Derbyshire. I have been interviewed on Radio Sheffield and have appeared playing at weddings on the ITV series ‘The Lakes’ and also ‘The Dales’. I also teach bagpipes to junior soldiers 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.
