I’ve been playing the bagpipes For 17 years so my tune selection is vast.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
Contact me as soon as possible to let me know and I’ll do my best to see if I’m available on the new times!
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
As I am a bagpiper unfortunately I don’t provide a DJ service. You probably wouldn’t want to hear my playlists anyway!!
How much time do you need to set up?
I usually arrive at the venue around 15-30minutes before the arranged start time. I like to keep myself right and have a bit of time to tune up beforehand!
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Feel free to have a look at my songs list. I can play a huge variety of traditional Scottish songs if there’s some not on that list, contact me and I’ll do my best to accommodate your preferences!
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes. Myself and my bagpipes. They’re loud enough so you don’t need anything else!
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
I can learn specific pieces as long as it’s possible on the bagpipes. Each song varies depending on practice times. A few of £30 in order to cover rehearsal costs would have to be added to cover this service.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
What’s not to love about the bagpipes?! Some of my Clients have commented on my bagpipes and the way I dress. My pipes are hand engraved Sterling silver with imitation ivory- save the elephants! I like to dress smart wearing a kilt! I’ve never played at a formal performance wearing trousers!! I have 2 different kilts I wear and take pride in dressing smart
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
St Paul’s Cathedral In London is definitely up there! Various places around Glasgow and the west include: Cottiers Theatre Oran Mor St Andrews Cathedral Trades Hall Of Glasgow Glasgow University Chapel Boclair House Hotel Mar Hall Golf and Spa Resort
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
My Great Grandfather was a piper in the Second World War for the Scots GuardsI grew up listening to my grandpa tell stories about his piping successes. It’s what inspired me to take up the bagpipes at a young age and continue to play them to this day!
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I’ve played as part of a pipe band at the world pipe band championships but the most high profile gig must have been when I played for the Hollywood film Maid of Honour with Patrick Dempsey and Michelle Monaghan. The were really nice people and Patrick Dempsey was happy to listen to me drone on about Grey’s Anatomy!!
