Bagpiper
London

Hi everyone, my name is Jamie, I am 27 years old, live in West London but went to school in Edinburgh. I have been playing the pipes since I was 7 years old and have competed in multiple tournaments and performances over that time, most notably for Princess Anne. I have a wide repertoire spanning from traditional Scottish classics to some pop songs which might not be expected at times! I think my girlfriend would attest that my pipes are the other long term relationship in my life and I have had a deep love of the instrument all my life! I hope that if you are to consider hiring me for any future events that you are up for good time, plenty of dancing and a dram or two! All the best, Jamie

Jamie was great! Very flexible and easy to coordinate with him. His playing was fab and we couldn't have asked for a better experience all around. Thank you Jamie!

It is rare that you get a piper that is the talk of the event but Jamie's showmanship, character and crowd presence certainly will do just that! True pleasure to have him pipe at my charity event and enabled me to raise so much for my London Marathon efforts. I owe Jamie a huge amount of thanks for making the event such a success in his own unique way!

At Royal Mid Surrey the burn Night has become something of a monster event! Jamie rose to the occasion with so much energy and truly led us into what can only be described as a musical medley that saw us Ceilidh dancing away until the wee hours! Smiley, polite and friendly he is willing to take direction and execute a great performance at the drop of the hat. Thanks Jamie and here's to next year! Best GM
