David Burnside

David Burnside is an excellent young Grade 1 piper with a wide range of experience. He is available for any occasion including Weddings, Burns Suppers, Dinners, Birthdays or any other event.

David started learning to play the pipes when he was only 6 years old and started taking professional engagements at the age of 14. Since then he has had a wide range of experience that includes competing with Grade 1 Pipe Bands the Clan Gregor Society and the Boghall and Bathgate Caledonia Pipe Band. In 2012, David won the European and Cowal Championships with Boghall and Bathgate, performed onstage at the highly successful pre-worlds concert at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and played in the bells on the BBC's Hogmanay Live with Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham. He has also performed at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo and the Moscow Military Tattoo with the Scottish UOTC Pipes and Drums and has played at weddings and other engagements all over the world. With this experience, an extremely professional and musical performance is guaranteed.

Both his Number 1 and Number 2 Dress is Ancient Hunting Fraser, primarily blue in colour.
