Michael is one of the most popular and sought after bagpipers on the south coast of the UK.
With over 25 years of piping under his belt, and 20+ of those years as a professional bagpiper, he is in constant demand for weddings, corporate events, funerals, private functions, birthday celebrations, Burns Night suppers, gala dinners, New Year’s Eve events and many more occasions besides.
Inspired to learn the pipes after falling in love with an oil painting of Bonny Prince Charlie which was hanging in his dentist’s office, Michael was taught initially by Bruce Roy Taylor, the Pipe Major of the Sussex Pipe Band, before moving on in his own right to play in various other bands, including the esteemed Eastbourne Scottish Pipe Band.
Bedecked in his traditional Douglas tartan, Michael is always immaculately turned out and his superb playing makes him one of the main talking points and abiding memories of any event.
Now a teacher in his own right, Michael generously gives up his time each week to teach blind and autistic children the traditional skills of the bagpipes, as well as working with private students, all keen to capture just a little of the magic of their tutor.
A consummate professional throughout, Michael is a versatile, friendly and charismatic performer who has the skills and experience to fit in with your occasion, whatever the event. Accordingly, the team at First & Foremost Entertainment have no hesitation in recommending him for all your piping needs.
