About Michelle

Bagpiper
Corby
Highland bagpiper and highland dancer.I have been dancing for over 35 years and playing the bagpipes for over 30 years At competition level.

Bagpiper and highland dancer and highland dance teacher. I started to learn the bagpipes in 1985 in Corby and later joined Carlsberg Pipe band, later known as Nene Valley Pipe band. I n 1995 I transferred to Peterborough Highland Pipe band and eventually became the Pipe sergeant and lead piper for for over 3 years. Over my time with the band we regular performed at competitions as well as solo competitions. I have now returned to Nene Valley Pipe band and continues to teach pipers and perform at a variety of events, with Over 20 years piping experience at all levels from weddings, birthday party's, funerals or any event as well as large engagement like Birmingham international tattoo in front of over 10,000 people. I am also a Highland dancer with numerous competition wins over 30 years. Can also supply dancers to accompany myself on the bagpipes. Recently I have performed at a Burns night which was featured live on bbc look east. Hopefully this will give you a insight into the experience I have, and you can feel rest assured that when booking me for your wedding /funeral/party/burns night/new year or any special occasion I will add that special touch.. I can also provide drummers, mini band, full band and highland dancers if required. Please feel free to browse some of my photo's, i can attend your event in any of the outfits featured in the photos, please state on booking if you would prefer a certain one. Thank you

We used Michelle and Mick for our wedding in Spring 2018 and We are over the moon that we did. A friend had mentioned how good they were and how professional they looked so my husband and I took a look and were thrilled. Both Michelle and Mick sounded fantastic and played together very well. My husband and I loved their attire they were very smart and just looked brilliant. Coming up to the wedding Michelle and Mick checked all details and were very profesional making sure we were all happy. On the wedding day I couldn’t have asked for anything more. They were punctual, sounded fantastic, looked brilliant and all the guests commented on how great they were. Thank you Michelle and Mick you truely made a fantastic impact on our very special day. We would highly recommend you to all.

I performed with Michelle at a wedding and she was always professional with high standards. Her time keeping was excellent and would highly recommend her for anyone who wants a piper for any occasion
