About Jimmy Leslie

London/ South West Scotland based piper; played at pubs, West End, clubs and many more! Certain to fit any bill.
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Been playing for a number of years with a wide range of tunes and can learn more at the request of clients. I have performed at a number of locations including pubs, the Turf Club, the West End and Windsor Castle. The classic tunes I can play include Highland Cathedral, Scotland the Brave, Flower of Scotland, Amazing Grace with an occasional AC/DC’s Thunderstruck thrown in! I have highland dress as well including a kilt and tunic with all of the other oddments, I am more than able to wear such dress for any kind of event. I can play at Weddings, Funerals, Private Events and anything more. Furthermore, venues do not matter whether it is a pub or a hall, so long as I don’t have to crouch!

Jimmy was absolutely fabulous. He was a charming and accomplished piper. He made our Burns Night Supper extra special. I would highly recommend him.

We booked Jimmy as the piper for burns night at our pub. He was brilliant from start to finish, so incredible. He was absolute pleasure to work with. He came on time, looked impeccable and played beautifully. He is a true professional and would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you!

Couldn’t think of a better way to go into dinner than a beautiful piping ceremony by James Leslie. A diverse range of music with an excellent standard of piping. I would certainly recommend James to anyone who would like a high quality bagpiper for the evening.
