John Nevans

John is a native of Lanarkshire.  He has been a piper since the age of seven and has had a successful career as a Nurse in the National Health Service for over thirty years.  Having recently retired from this profession John has now established himself in the wedding service industry, supplying piping services where required.

Johns career in piping sees him as a successful player in Pipe Bands and for eighteen years he lead three different bands to success in their grades.  His final post was as Pipe Major of the City of Glasgow Pipes and Drums.  John has `retired' from leading Bands and played for the Vale of Athol Pipe Band in the premier grade for several years before deciding to finish playing competitively and concentrate on performing at functions.

John includes in his new career a part time post as a piping instructor in an independent school, he has experience in the making of bagpipes and is a qualified Instructor and adjudicator with the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association.

The things that make John the choice to be the piper for your wedding is – He looks like a piper should look!   He has an impeccable standard of uniform dress, from his pipe banner to his dirk.  He has a range of tartans to suit your wedding party colour scheme.  He is versatile being an excellent toastmaster and a noted Robert Burns scholar.  Not least of his qualities is his high standard of playing performance and his rugged good looks (written on command of the subject).
