Colin was born in Glasgow, and moved to the North of England a number of years ago. He has been playing the pipes for over twenty five years in various bands, as a solo artist, and also as a session musician. His music has taken him all over the world, to places such as Israel, Australia, Italy, France, Germany, Belgium and Holland, to name a few. He has won several trophies and awards over the years, and played at some big venues around Europe. In the North of England, he has performed at the Sage Gateshead, St James's Park, Alnwick Castle, Hexham Queen's Hall, Sunderland Empire Theatre and Whitley Bay Playhouse.

Review:

Colin was just magnificent at our wedding on Saturday. First of all he saved us last minute as our bagpiper cancelled two weeks before the wedding. Our day was a very intimate church wedding and we asked Colin to play Highland Cathedral as we exited the church as it meant a lot to my husband (reminding him of his grandfather who is no longer with us).
