About Ally

Ally The Bagpiper

Hi I’m Ally. I’ve been playing the bagpipes for 17 years and been serving in the British Army playing the bagpipes for the past 7 years. I learnt from one of the previous Sovereigns Pipers (The Queens Piper) so I’ve had great tuition and great amounts of experience. I currently play with the current Grade 1 WORLD Pipe Band Champions - People’s Ford Boghall and Bathgate Caledonia. I am available for any occasion. I’m more than capable to do pretty much anything that you may desire for whatever the occasion might be.

Ally played at our Burns Supper and did an excellent job. He was on time, had no problems in accommodating a last minute change to the running order, and was professional and helpful throughout. We would gladly have him back.
