About Tam

Bagpiper
Glasgow
Public liability insurance of £1 million
I am a full time Piper and Flautist living in Cambuslang. I love doing what I do and hope I can play for you sometime. Slainte, Tam

I am a full time professional piper with over 40 years experience. I offer a professional, friendly and personal service and am priced to suit most budgets. I was taught initially by our local Pipe Major Henry McGuinness for about 5 years and the Iain MacLeod who was himself taught by Angus MacPherson and also PM Donald MacLeod. I also had occasional Piobaireachd tuition from Archie Kenneth. I love playing and to that end I went full time in August 2015. I play traditional or modern music and am happy to learn requests if they fit on the pipes. Given a bit of notice I can learn most things if they fit on the range of the pipes. I also play the flute and again have over 35 years experience playing mainly traditional Scottish and Irish music but also playing modern music and happy to learn requests.
