I have been playing pipes for over 15 years now on and off. I started in Norwich, moved up to Edinburgh, and then finally settled in Hayes, Kent. 

I was looking for a band nearby and discovered Schiehallion Pipes And Drums just a few minutes down the road!

The welcome was friendly with lots of tea and cake! The band itself is small in number but dedicated and passionate about piping. We are getting together a good solid sound with lots of fun traditional tunes, and a supportive environment to learn and to play. We do local gigs parades, Burns Nights and New Year's Eves events, organised through the band.

I am so happy to be playing pipes again with my new band, and we welcome anyone to come and join in.
