Welcome to the Bagpiping Website of Robert Burns!

Robert Burns performs traditional Scottish and Irish tunes on the Great Highland Bagpipe for hire, busking, and for pleasure individually, in sessions, and as a member of the Cameron Highlanders Pipe Band. His primary piping interests are auld-style Scotch and Irish stepdance tunes (the ceol beag), haunting Celtic song airs (the ceol meadhonach), the auld-style great music (the ceol mor, informally known as “piobaireachd” below) of the pipes, composing, performing with non-piper musicians and singers, and busking which he does frequently with a djembe & conga player. Robert Burns proudly competes with a set of Strathmore pipes and silver-soled chanter made by Murray Henderson and has a set of Naill pipes adapted to play with a replica of a 1785 black Kintail chanter made by Hamish Moore keyed to A@440MHz for playing with other musicians and with greater tonal quality.
