LESLEY THOMPSON

A Bagpiper For All Occasions

Make your occasion really special and memorable with a professional piper as part of your celebrations. Let me welcome your guests and set the tone for the day. I have over 10 years experience of solo event piping in the UK and abroad.

 

Enchanted by the sound of the pipes, I began my bagpiping career with Ellon Pipe Band in 1999, competed with Inverkeithing Pipe Band from 2001 and played for 2 years with the Territorial Army in Dunfermline. I am now Pipe Major of the Cupar and District Pipe Band, having restarted the band back in 2012 to serve our local community.
I dress in full piping uniform, wearing the McLean of Duarte tartan traditionally worn by the Cupar band.
