Listen to Andy speak about the pride, spirit and spectacle of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Scotland. A spirit of its own: https://goo.gl/lBkE6A

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/

Music composed by Giles Lamb and performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

I will always remember playing the pipe up on the top of the Battlements at the Army School of Piping (Edinburgh Castle) as a young lad while Captain John MacLellan stood and watched on, what an honour it was. Will always remember that day with pride.

At the Edinburgh Tattoo sometime in the 1960's (Possibly 1966) the Lone Piper (Ian Morrison) appeared but didn't play the 'pipes....someone had pinched the reed from the pipe chanter!! The silence was embarrassing. However Pipe Major John Allan (Queens Own Highlanders) played the lament on his pipes from his position on the concourse and saved the day. Incidentally, Ian became the world champion piper at least on four years after this.
