Piping with a personal touch.
The Piper for all Occasions
How about a Pipe band?
TRADITIONAL HIGHLAND PIPING
I am an accomplished piper and has been playing the Great Highland Bagpipes for 18 plus years.
On discharge from the Armed Forces, after 22 years service, both Regular and Permanent Staff for TA Units, I attended the Piper’s course at the Army School of Bagpipe Music and Highland Drumming, Inchdrewer House, Colinton. Edinburgh. I went on to be tutored further under the watchful eye of an Ex Scots Guards Pipe Major, prior to launching my professional career as a Piper. I am proud to have been appointed the Honorary Piper for The Defense Academy of the United Kingdom, The Swindon and District Caledonian Society and several other Military Establishments. I am predominately a solo piper and have attended many Weddings, Funerals, Birthdays and Corporate events in this capacity.
I also manage The Home Counties Pipes & Drums who are available for larger corporate events, carnivals and fetes. Members of the Band and myself have recently completed 8 stadium tours with Sir Rod Stewart, We have also played alongside The National Symphony Orchestra with the well-known and respected conductor, Anthony Inglis.
I have several tartans, Royal Stewart, Black Watch, and Black Stewart, my family tartans, and can attend in Formal Ceremonial dress, Day or Evening dress subject to your preference. The Band also have several other additional tartans including Red Robertson, Lindsay, and Lamont but Royal Stewart is their Formal Band Tartan.
Having a Piper or Pipes & Drums can add so much to your day, and there is no sound quite like a perfectly tuned set of pipes to enhance your day.
I am a full-time professional Piper and can travel almost anywhere in England to provide you a friendly and efficient service.
The Band are available for larger events such as fetes, festivals, parades and promotional launches and for smaller events we can provide a Mini Band.
The Band is made up of members located throughout the South and can supply any number of Pipers and Drummers according to your requirements. Myself and my colleagues will tailor the event to your specific requirements and can advise where needed, on the formal parts of your event, including the best way to utilize your piper, or pipe Band to make it an occasion to remember. We also have a Highland Dance Group who can attend with the band or with a solo Piper
All Band members experienced and highly skilled musicians, brought together through a passion for their hobby and to promote traditional Highland Bagpipe Music and Highland Dancing..
The band members are located throughout the south of England from Devon in the South West, to Kent in the South East and North as far as Shropshire, Leicestershire, and the Midlands. A majority of our members come from bands within their own local areas, thus we can attend your event anywhere within the united Kingdom. Band Members can travel overseas if required and makes this the one stop site for your occasion from solo piper to full Marching Band and dance group.
We have previously performed together at many Military, Corporate and celebrity events, Concerts, Weddings, Birthdays, Funerals, Burn's Nights, Birthdays, and TV and Radio presentations within the UK.
No matter what your event we can provide a highly professional service, Overseas Performances are also possible having members previously attended events in in many counties in Europe, and also Russia, Canada, The Caribbean, and the USA.
