Scott MacLeod is a musician from the SF Bay Area ~ ScottMacLeod.com/piping.htm.
His first album, 'Honey in the Bag,' seeks to expressively evoke the
harmonious Scottish Small Pipes' sweetness in playing transcendent ceòl
beag, or light music. He is the founder & president of
free-to-students' World University & School, with its Scottish
Small Piping WIKI subject for open teaching and learning.
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.
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.
with some of the finest piping teachers and pipers in the world: John MacFadyen, Duncan
Majors Alasdair Gillies and Ian Whitelaw,
Jack Lee, Lorne MacDougall and Connor Sinclair.
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.
