Profile



This Piper started playing the Scottish Highland Bagpipes at the tender age of 12 and has been playing for almost 30 years. During this time he has received many accolades and has won many competitions both as a soloist and Pipe Band member.

Within 2 years of learning to play the Bagpipes, He had won many Irish solo competitions and went on to become the Provincial Juvenile Champion of Leinster three years in a row and placed in the top 4 in the All-Ireland Championships at Juvenile level several times.

Having left Ireland in 1990, He became a member of a former RSPBA Champion of Champions band called the Pride of Murray Pipe Band based in West London.

As a member of the band, He played in all the major competitions including the World Championships where the band were consistently placed in the top 6 in their grade. While He was a member of the band, it progressed from Grade 3 to Grade 2.

He also had the privilege of being a member of the band when they were invited to be the only civilian band to play for Her Majesty the Queen and other members of the Royal Family on the occasion of her Golden Jubilee in 2002.

Reviews:

"I've just spoken with the Wedding Planner and he gave you an absolutely glowing review, thank you so much. He said you went above and beyond his expectations and the guests loved you! Can't wait to book you again"

"He went out of his way to meet us initially to discuss our choice of music and offered some really great advice in respect of some of our song choices. On the day he arrived nice and early!! The guests absolutely loved him as did we, when we look back at our photographs of the day we definitely know that the day would not have been the same without him there. He brought that traditional piper feel that makes a wedding a good wedding! He played a wonderful mix of old and new Irish and Scottish tunes for us and sounded magical and haunting as well as uplifting and rousing and really added to everyone’s enjoyment of the day"
