About Charlie Ward

Solo piper and teacher. Originally from the hills outside of Edinburgh, but playing professionally in London for 12 years.
Bagpiper
London

I began playing the pipes when I was eight and living in Scotland. I've played in various bands over the years, including the Pipes and Drums of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, but now perform mostly as a soloist. When I'm not performing I also teach the pipes.

Charlie played the pipes at our school Burns night ceilidh and he was absolutely fantastic. There was so much praise for him from all our guests who said how much he made the evening with his wonderful playing. And as the organiser of the evening I felt especially thankful, Charlie was really accommodating to all our needs, arrived in great time and was a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Charlie and look forward to getting you back soon!

I found Charlie on line and contacted him by phone. He was a pleasure to communicate with. On the day, he was punctual, polite, showed great respect to both our home and our guests. He piped in and addressed the haggies to the excitement and delight of all. We parted on excellent terms; delighted that we have found Charlie.
