I’m a professional Scottish bagpiper for hire. Available 7 days a week. I grew up in Glasgow and started learning the pipes at 11 years old. Then moved to the north of England in my early 20s. I have 30 years continuous experience playing to a high standard with pipe bands in Scotland and England. I’ve performed at hundreds of events as a solo musician. Including weddings, funerals, birthday parties, and more.
I perform the bagpipes weekly throughout Cumbria & The Lake District. I also travel to Lancashire, Yorkshire, County Durham, The Scottish Borders and further afield on request.
I’ve recently visited Barrow-in Furness, Kendal, Keswick, Grasmere, Windermere, Ambleside, Penrith, Carlisle, Ulverston, Grange-over-Sands, Cartmel, Ravenglass, Whitehaven, Workington, Cockermouth, Patterdale, Gosforth, Silloth, Maryport and Langdale.
