I'm Charlie, originally from the hills outside of Edinburgh, but based in London since 2010.
I learned to play the bagpipes as a child, and have been lucky to play in a number of civilian and military bands, including performing with the Royal Regiment of Scotland at the 2005 Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
Whatever occasion you're planning, I'd be happy to chat about the best way to incorporate bagpipes.
The Burns Night Celebration
ADDRESSING THE HAGGIS
In addition to playing the famous bagpipe tune 'A Man's a Man for a' That', it's traditional to recite the Address to the Haggis, in which Burns mocks fancy food in preference for traditional Scottish fare!
I deliver the address as well as piping in the haggis.
