About me

I have been playing the bagpipes since the age of 5. I was initially taught by my father, but then when I progressed past the basic my father took me for tuition with Pipe Major Lenny Browne, who was an ex Army Pipe Major and tutor to many current world champion bagpipers.

Lenny Browne invited me to join the RAF Halton Pipes and Drums at the age of 10 and I have been playing with them for 20 years now. I am now the Pipe Sergeant (Second in command) of the RAF pipe band.

At the age of 14 I was encouraged to audition for the National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland. This required me to audition with over 750 young applicants throughout scotland for a place in the 32 strong band. I was successful and the only person south of the border, living in England to be successful in doing so and to this day no one has achieved this from England.

I have been fortunate enough to perform at events worldwide, for State and Royal Air Force ceremonial events as well as for charity and in competitions.

Some of the events include;

Queens 90th Birthday Celebration, Windsor Catle
Edinburgh Military Tattoo
Australia Military Tattoo
The Jools Holland New Years Show, BBC Television
British Embassy, Warsaw, Poland
Wembley Stadium, England vs. Scotland Football Matches
Royal Norfolk Show
Thursford Christmas Spectacular (Europe's biggest christmas production - with more visitors than Glastonbury!!)

To name Just a few events.

I have also been involved in the Royal Air Force pipe bands competition band helping to lead it and have taken the band on to achieve the following.

British Champions 2015
Runners Up Scottish Championships 2015
Third Place World Championships 2015
Runners up World Championships 2007

So as well as palying at many different types of gigs I have very much enjoyed competing at a high level.

I am currently the RAF Champion Solo Piper.
