Bagpipe

Alastair
BIOGRAPHY ~ Alastair has been playing the bagpipes for 17 years and professionally for 9 years at various functions not only in Edmonton but also across Canada. Weddings, funerals, banquets, birthdays, anniversaries, corporate events, golf and curling tournaments, Burns suppers, political functions, military mess dinners and parades are some of the functions that Alastair has performed at previously.

AFFILIATIONS ~ Alastair is a member of the Alberta Caledonia Pipe Band, which placed 7th in Grade 1 at the 2001 World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow. They are world-renowned and have been invited to perform concerts and compete at different highland games around the world. "They Took Their Leave" is the band's first CD and can be found at various stores, on-line and in particular "Scottish Imports" in Edmonton.

Alastair is also a member of the Wajjo African Drummers and has been playing with them for 5 years. They are well known throughout the Edmonton Arts Community and became very popular with Edmontonians at the Edmonton Fringe Festival. Wajjo currently has 2 CDs out and the second CD, featuring Alastair, is called "Wutpa". The CDs are available at "Sam the Record Man" and "Scottish Imports" on Whyte Avenue.

He is also an instructor with the Edmonton Boys Pipe Band (2002 Novice Juvenile World Pipe Band Champions). He began as a playing member in 1987.
