Scottish Small pipes
Iain last taught at the Pipers’ Gathering in 2003. Although originally from a Highland piping background, he has been involved in the bellows pipe revival in Scotland since the early 80’s. In that time he has made two solo piping CDs (Tryst and Sealbh), as well as a number of recordings with the groups The Tannahill Weavers, Smalltalk and Ossian. His day job also involves piping – as producer of the popular weekly pipe music programme Pipeline on BBC Radio Scotland. He has recently been working on piping material in the BBC archive, a source rich in early recordings from the Northumbrian, Irish and Scottish traditions.
