REPERTOIRE

The following represents a sampling of my repertoire. Those with a Scottish or Irish background would be familiar with many of the tunes listed here. Also included are movie themes and general pop songs that sit well on the bagpipe. With enough notice, I am happy to arrange and play any special requests, just bear in mind that some non-traditional tunes may not suit the bagpipe's scale.
