My Songs.

The following is a selection of my repertoire, 
I do have other tunes that may be unfamiliar to non piping people. 
If you don't see your favourite, please get in touch, I do have an extensive library and can usually source and learn most bagpipe tunes.

Irish Tunes

Danny boy

For Ireland I wouldn't tell her name

Oft in the Stilly night

Some tunes I won't or can't play.

Braveheart
Most pop songs
Any offensive music

Some popular songs that aren't specifically written for the bagpipe can sometimes be played.
However, most can't and although some pipers will attempt a version of that song, I prefer not to play anything that isn't correct or as close as can be to the original.
Bagpipes only have 9 notes so we can be very restricted in what can and can't be done.
I always prefer to aim to have my playing and presence at your event to be a memorable one and that could sometimes mean I should not attempt a certain piece if, in my opinion that it will have a negative impact.
