I was taught the bagpipes as a child and have been playing for over 25 years. I have played and competed with various pipe bands and now compete with Manchester Phoenix Pipe Band. I teach the bagpipes privately and I'm also employed by the M.O.D to teach the bagpipes at the Army Foundation College in Harrogate to junior soldiers. I have appeared on the ITV Series 'The Dales' as well as 'The Lakes' playing at weddings featured on the programs. I have performed at 1000's of weddings, funerals, parties, and other events and have countless positive testimonials from very happy clients. I am booked every New Years Eve to play at Thorpe Park Hotel in Leeds, as well as Napoleon's Casino in Sheffield. I also receive repeat Burns Night bookings from Loch Fyne in Sheffield. I have a very good relationship with a number of funeral directors in Sheffield, Barnsley, Leeds, Manchester and Nottingham, all of whom use me as their first port of call whenever they have a client that needs a bagpiper.

I cover Leeds, Sheffield, Manchester, Bolton, Harrogate, Bradford, York, Doncaster, Wakefield, Hull, Derby, Nottingham, and Lincoln, etc.

Ed was booked as a surprise for my husband on our wedding day and he did not disappoint! . He was also very accommodating at coming to play at 2 venues due to the pandemic when restrictions meant less numbers in church. Nothing was too much for him. He came and played me into church and also and during the signing of the register. He also played at our wedding blessing and he was exceptional ! there was not dry eye in the house . We can highly recommend Ed as one of the best thank you Michelle and Scott Lowman

Oh my goodness!! What a fitting tribute to my Dad. Ed walked the cars into the crematorium. It was very moving and so special. Ed is a wonderful player and I will definitely be recommending him to all. Thankyou.

Set List/Services

I play all the well known Scottish bagpipe tunes including Highland Cathedral, Flower of Scotland, Mull of Kyntyre, Amazing Grace, Scotland The Brave, Scottish Soldier, Skye Boat Song, Highland Laddie and The Black Bear, etc. My repertoire is quite extensive and changes from time to time as I'm frequently learning new tunes as a solo player and a band player.
