I've played the Scottish bagpipes for more than 40 years, and usually perform in full highland regalia, - in the ancient, hunting, MacLeod tartan. I try to play for 5-9 engagements a month. I've played for numerous weddings, funerals, and other events, and in pipe bands.

I've studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, two separate years (1977-1978 and 2003-2004), playing in the Fettes College (IB) high school Pipe Band and at the Edinburgh Tattoo in the Castle; and studying in the School of Celtic and Scottish Studies at the University of Edinburgh.

I've studied with some of the finest piping teachers and pipers in the world: John MacFadyen, Duncan Johnstone, Pipe Majors Alasdair Gillies and Ian Whitelaw, Jack Lee, Lorne MacDougall and Connor Sinclair.

Bagpipe Music for Your Wedding:

 I often play Amazing Grace, and Scotland the Brave, because they're loved, familiar and beautiful. I also play the lovely 'Scotsaire Hornpipe,' and 6/8 Marches such as Seamus MacNeill and Cameron MacFadyen, as well as Hornpipes, Jigs and Reels, and occasionally an urlar from a Piobaireachd. Given enough time to learn a piece of music, I also take requests.
