Robertson Bagpiping is owned by David Robertson who is originally from North Berwick in East Lothian, and now living in Lincolnshire. David has been a proficient bagpiper for many years and is available to be hired for weddings, funerals, Burn’s Nights, special events and corporate events.
His piping experience has included playing and competing with pipe bands at numerous events, tattoos and major pipe band championships in the UK and Europe. Over the years, he has also successfully competed in solo piping competitions where his playing ability earned him a number of 1st places and highly placed finishes.
His piping career started at a young age when he joined North Berwick Pipe Band and gained an excellent grounding in the art of piping. This has stood him in good stead for the rest of his career.
David takes great pride and is passionate about playing bagpipes with lots of musicality and maintaining a finely tuned, quality sounding instrument. He has a large repertoire of traditional bagpipe tunes from which to choose for your event and will also cater for other styles and musical tastes.
