From a town called Tranent , Near Edinburgh, I joined the Army and served 24 years.
Moved to Cyprus in 2014 to start Cyprus First Kilt Hire Company and bring my piping experience to Events.
I have been playing the Bagpipes for over 20 years now , from solo performing , to playing with various Bands and in the Wedding scene now for some time also. The Bagpipes bring a sense of occasion to any event but none more so than to a Wedding, and you dont have to be Scottish to enjoy the Skirl of the Pipes.
Although I am based in Paphos , I travel all over the island to play at weddings and functions - I am also the choice Piper of many of the Wedding Planners and Wedding Companies, namely Tui , Thomas Cook and Olympic Weddings. I am also regularly used for Burns Functions, New Years Party and any other occasion that calls for a mad jock wi pipe
