I began playing the pipes at 9 years old, I then joined the Army when I left school and joined the Black Watch and served in the pipes and drums. With the Black Watch, I was privileged to take part in many high profile events such as the Royal Edinburgh Tattoo (3 times) the hand over of Hong Kong and 2 musical tours of North America, in addition to this we also played for most members of the Royal Family and visited numerous countries such as New Zealand, Ireland, Kenya and Crete. Since leaving the army I have been lucky to take part in other prestigious events such as the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo in 2014, the Basel Tattoo in 2015 and the Berlin Tattoo in 2016. My experience at these events carries through to the services I can offer for your special day. I have a range of different tartans and uniform styles to choose from. I am also able to offer a bagpipe composition to be played and a framed copy of the score to commemorate your special day.
