Bagpiper or Pipe Band


I have been playing the bagpipes since 1984, having learnt whilst a student of Electronic Engineering at Auckland University, New Zealand. My family have a long heritage of playing the bagpipes. My grandfather piped for London Scottish and set up the Chingford Pipe Band in the 1950s. My mum was the pipe major of the band and my aunt was a piper in the famous Dagenham Girl Pipers. With all this family bagpiping legacy it was inevitable that I would take up the pipes!
