About

The main player is Full Time Bagpiper Kenneth McBride who has over 45 years of solo and Pipe band experience at the highest level playing at high profile events and competitions.

Having so much experience means that he has a number of equally competent and experienced players ready to step in as required so you are Guaranteed Availability for your event.
All the Pipers have Police or a Military background and are totally reliable to be punctual, dressed immaculately and play to the highest level.

MyBagpiper can supply any number of pipers for events and can include drummers as well.
So if you are looking for 2 pipers and drummer, quartet, full Pipe Band or any other combination use the contact page to enquire about prices. If required, the pipers can play for dancers or with other musicians such as organists and ceilidh bands.
The Burns Supper piper can also address the haggis.

MyBagpiper offers a choice of uniform, full Highland regalia with feather bonnet which is normally suited for weddings and events where the piper has a big impact. The more subtle kilt, jacket and tie uniform is best for funerals and burns suppers. However the decision is completely your choice.

The bands I have been a member of include Monktonhall Colliery, Prestonpans Royal British Legion, Scottish Gas Caledonia, Lothian and Borders Police, Shotts and Dykehead Caledonia and Pipers Trail.
During my 23 years with L othian and Borders Police Pipe Band I served as both Pipe Sergeant and Pipe Major for a number of years. I also served as Secretary which meant dealing with the day to day running of the band such as organising events, uniforms, travel and accommodation services for all the band.

Throughout my time I have played at an innumerable number of weddings and high profile engagements including –
Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo in Edinburgh and Australia,
The Pope’s Christmas concert in the Vatican,
Moulin Rouge in Paris,
Numerous Military Tattoos in Germany, France, Denmark, Spain, USA, Canada, Australia and
Scottish/Music festivals in Russia, Italy, Indonesia, Sardinia and Belgium.

Myself and three of my colleagues also perform as part of a Scottish Show on board some of the cruise ships.

I regularly play for the Royal Company of Archers and during these performances have performed for Royalty including HM Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and Princess Anne.

I am currently a member of the Piper’s Trail Pipe Band which performed at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo this year (2017).

Lastly I am a member of the Eagle Pipers Society which meets every 2nd Tuesday in the Scots Guards Club in Edinburgh, so if you want a chat or hear me play contact me and I’ll arrange a time and date.

Although based in the Lothians, MyBagpiper is available throughout Scotland, UK and Worldwide.

Hope to hear from you soon.
Kenny
