A veteran of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, Piping has been a life-long passion for Andy who has had the honour of being the lone piper at this iconic event. Find out more about the Edinburgh Military Tattoo here: https://goo.gl/nPZN1E
Andy began his musical journey at just 10 years old, when his next-door neighbour offered to teach him the Scottish Bagpipes. After a couple of months, he had the bug and has been carrying on the traditions and culture of Scottish music ever since. Watch as Andy describes his own experiences of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo – from walking through the drawbridge of Edinburgh Castle and seeing the crowd when he was a boy to the flash of the spotlight signalling the beginning of his lament as the lone piper – and see the magical highlights of this uniquely Scottish celebration of music, dance and military pageantry.
Being in the military, in a Scottish regiment, it doesn’t matter where Andy goes, he always takes his ScotSpirit with him. Discover more of what makes Scotland unique here: https://www.visitscotland.com/about/uniquely-scottish/
