I have played music since I was a child in the local pipe band, and since that time have had a long career of solo competition at the professional level, Grade 1 and 2 pipe bands, and recordings of various kinds: folk/world music bands, pipe bands, Highland dancing recordings and solo recordings for performance.

I published a collection of music in 2008, have had my tunes published in many other collections, and two piobaireachds I composed are available for download and study on the Piobaireachd Society website.

In 2005 I started a business selling various types of bagpipes and accessories, and it is now a full-service supply for pipers, drummers, pipe bands and also specializing in Scottish smallpipes, reelpipes and uilleann pipes. provides top-quality products and service to customers across North America, into Europe, and especially right here in the Canadian prairies.

If you want to learn bagpipes, buy or sell bagpipes, or get help with some aspect of your music, please get in touch. I am also available for performances on Highland bagpipes, uilleann bagpipes, or Scottish smallpipes.
