1. How long have you been playing pipes and who taught you?
I started learning the pipes in 2017 and I was taught by Pipe Major Iain MacDonald, Pipe Major Russell Mechan and Graham Walker.

2. Favourite tune(s) that the band plays?
My favourite tunes that the band plays are the Green Hills of Tyrol and the Atholl Highlanders.

3. Favourite trip or gig you’ve played with the band?
My favourite trip that I have been on was my first trip to Strakonice, Czech Republic in 2018. This was also the band’s 40th anniversary.

4. Most memorable pipe band moment?
My most memorable moment was the first time playing in Strakonice. The band starts to play in a tunnel before the first major stage performance and the sound that we created inside that tunnel was just incredible, I was bursting with pride at that moment. The hairs are sticking up on the back of my neck thinking about it now. Something I will never forget.

5. What is your favourite thing about being in the band? My favourite thing about being in the band is that is feels like one big family. Everyone lends a hand to help someone out, either to do with the band or out with, in any way they can.
