Meet the Piper

James started learning the pipes at the age of 10 years old at Wallstone pipe band. at the young age 14 he was spotted by the director of the National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland Paul Warren who auditioned him for the Scotland Team containing the very best pipers and drummers in the country. James was successful in his audition and became one of the main pipers in the band. A year later James went on to play with Lomond and Clyde Pipe Band Who at that time were the current Brittish Champions, James was the youngest in the band. James has been taught by a lot of well sought after tutors like Tam Anderson who won the worlds as a pipe major, Stuart Cassels the founder of the Chilli pipers, Gordon Walker who is known as possibly the best man ever to pick up a set of pipes.

James, tell us a bit about more about your piping career so far…

I left the pipe band scene in 2005 for different challenges and that’s when I stumbled across Celtic Spirit one of the most sort after entertainment band around travelling through Scotland, England, Ireland, Amsterdam to as far as Canada. I found myself in crazy situations like appearing on TV shows like THE HOUR SHOW, STV NEWS, REAL RADIO FOOTBALL PHONE IN plus TV shows and radio over in Canada too, mixing with lots of famous faces on my travels most recently was the piper for the first minister of Scotland. I’ve done over 150 weddings some of them including celebrities weddings I also did a lot of Coporate Events and parties over the five years with the band. I have played at the smallest to the biggest venues including SECC Armadillo, Hampden Park and most memorable Ibrox Stadium in front of 55,000 people, I must admit that did get the legs shaking a wee bit!
