Experience: George is currently finishing an Engineering degree at Southampton University and has been piping for a significant portion of his life. George plays with a band in Hampshire and often helps other bands when they are short of pipers. Band jobs include carnivals, festivals, cruise ship sailaways, Remembrance days and virtually everything else. Following political troubles in the band, they have just returned to the competition circuit competing in grade four and grade three. George has performed at many weddings, burns nights, birthday parties, funerals, etc and is well accustomed to what is required of pipers at such events. George also currently pipes for the Corryvreckan Dance Display Team, based in Bristol and he also teaches the bagpipes at a local school when the main teacher is away.
Just a quick note to say many thanks for organising George May bury to play at my grandmothers funeral.
Everybody was very impressed with the music that he chose and played it was so moving and lifted everyone’s spirits.
I’m sure he will be booked by our family again hopefully next time for a more happy occasion! I haven’t found the right man yet but if I get married I will definitely be requesting the pipes!
Lesley and Jane Thomson
