James started playing the bagpipes at George Heriot’s School in Edinburgh nearly 15 years ago where he received high level tuition from some of the best pipers in Scotland. When James went to university he entertained his fellow classmates with his musicianship, then played with Edinburgh’s Stockbridge Pipe Band during the holidays.
Since moving to London James has taken his piping much more seriously and now is a front rank player with the top pipe band in London. James continues to receive tuition from a number of top players around the world and is growing in his development day by day.

“James is originally from Edinburgh and played in his school pipe band. There he received top tuition and played to a high standard. James has been studying and working in England for a few years now but is still very much connected to his Scottish roots. James listens to a lot of Scottish, Irish and Canadian folk music. This vibrant tradition is something that James is very proud to be part of”
