I play several different types of bagpipes, each having their own unique sound. The Great Highland Bagpipe (the 'normal', 'loud' bagpipe) is suitable for creating a Scottish ambience, whether loud and fast dance music or airs and marches for a solemn occasion. The Scottish Smallpipe has a much quieter and mellow sound, more suited for indoor performances. These pipes go well with other folk instruments such as fiddle, whistle, accordion, guitar, &c. The Northumbrian Smallpipe has a similar sound to the Scottish Smallpipe, but a little 'sweeter'.
The tunes I play are suitable for each occasion and range from traditional Scottish and Irish to contemporary and non-traditional songs. Tune requests are most welcome, with reasonable advanced notification.
