For requests. Please let me know in advance.
I can play most by memory on request without notice, but in case I haven’t played one or two in a while, it helps a lot to know before. Thanks!
What do your clients love most about your performances?
I care greatly about quality of sound when it comes to piping, doing my best to show the instrument at its most beautiful. I’d say also, reading a moment and ensuring performance and timings blend seamlessly. My experience playing a variety of settings - over 100 services and ceremonies, seems a useful source of advice / assurance for clients.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
2023 SKY Boxing | York Hall Mansion House Good Morning Britain, ITV Bath Abbey League of Their Own, SKY Max Lloyds of London NearlyWeds Podcast & Live Show Union Chapel George’s Windsor Castle The Groucho Elstree TVStudios Cliveden House Livery Hall The Drum Evening Standard Great Hall St Barts St Johns Waterloo The Oval
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
I am a classically trained pianist, so I guess the way I play pipes has been influenced in some way by that. Same said for trombone and styles of playing in jazz/ big bands. Perhaps use of ornamentation and expression leans somewhat towards piano phrasing, than a military style of piping. For female pipers, Dark Isle Tess is a great source of inspo 🎶
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
I’ve done a few TV gigs, ITV and SKY mainly. For live audiences, I’d say the Queen’s memorial at Lloyds of London - 5,000, broadcasted live. I had been piping professionally for only a year at that point, and had little military or formal piping experience - so it was a real honour to be invited to play.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I understand there can be delays and hiccups when organising events, so I’ll always try and be flexible to meet your timings.
How much time do you need to set up?
None! A piper is often booked as a key moment musician. Such as an aisle entrance, funeral committal, or suprise party. I arrive warmed up and ready to play 🎶
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Yes! If there are particular songs from my repertoire you'd like played, let me know before the event. Or I can send a list of favourites to suit the moment. If you have a tune in mind I haven’t listed, I might know it or be able to do a cover for pipes.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If you’d like a specific tune played not on my repertoire, that’s no problem and let me know in advance. I can sight read new sheet music, or look at transposing a song for pipes.
