Piping has been in my family for generations. For as long as I can remember pipes have been a constant in the Sinclair household. I was taught by my Uncle, Norrie Sinclair, who was a bagpipe teacher and a composer of some note. My father, Jimmy, was Pipe Major of the local pipeband as was his father before him.
My Grandfather was also Pipe Major of The famous Black Watch as was his brother and his father. Indeed, it is my Great Grand fathers pipes that I play today. These pipes are living history having been played in the trenches in WW1 and then returning to France in WWII. They have returned to France again but luckily that was only for a World Cup soccer game!! My sons also play the pipes so hopefully this strong tradition will continue for generations to come.
My father has been piping at weddings and other engagements for years and I followed suit as soon as I was old enough and have great experience in playing at weddings. I can also 'address the haggis' in my own inimitable style whether this be at a traditional Burns Supper or maybe just a bit of fun before the Wedding Breakfast.
I can source other pipers and drummers if required.
