Ivan Brooks, the Kent Piper
I am a Highland Piper based in South East England, and have been performing with my Bagpipes at various events since the tender age of 10. I started to learn the Bagpipes back in 1978 and 1st performed a nervous solo at a wedding at Aylesford church. I am the Pipe Sergeant within the City Of Rochester Pipe Band, who are also available for functions and events.
