‘Hello’, My name is Phil McConnell, I have been playing the Highland Bagpipes for 45 yrs. As a member of the Royal Artillery Army Pipe Band Liverpool, I have played on Horse Guards Parade and over the years I have been a member of the Clan McLeod Pipe Band, Chorley Pipe Band and at present, I am also a member of the Warrington Pipe Band.
I have been playing the highland bagpipes for over 40 years as well as playing on horse guards parade in the presence of our royal family, and together with one thousand pipers, I played at the opening ceremony of the 1986 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh.
My Passion allows me to offer my services as a Bagpiper to many Local Parades and Events as well as offering services to the public playing at Weddings, Funerals, Burns night celebrations, anniversaries, New Year Eve events and birthdays.
The Sound of the Bagpiper is ideal for any ‘opening event’ and will seize the moment, lending extra emotion to the event. The visual image of the ‘Lone Piper’ will create a memorable occasion to treasure for a very long time.
