Jonathan is an experienced highland bagpiper who has been performing at weddings, funerals and other private and public events for over a decade. He is a long-term member of the Ashbourne Pipes and Drums and plays with them at a large number of competitions every year.

Jonathan can play as a solo bagpiper or with the accompaniment of several members of his family, who also play the bagpipes. He can also play the Scottish Smallpipes (which are a quieter version of the highland pipes) and the Uilleann Pipes (Irish Pipes), which are ideal for playing in enclosed spaces, and as quiet entertainment, such as during the signing of the register and Irish funerals / wakes. Jonathan can also provide a full band to back him on the Uilleann pipes which includes bodhrán, concertina, tin whistle and fiddle players.
