RockPipes are an energetic Celtic Rock Band with a difference - we have great fun, encourage loads of audience participation and love gigs where we can show off our literally flaming pipes! We mix rock classics from the likes of Pink Floyd, the Stones, even Abba and Coldplay with traditional Scottish and Celtic numbers, our two formidible highland pipers and fiddle player leading vocal lines.
We're a mix of classically-trained musicians (and teachers!) and pipe band members, together presenting a fantastically frantic fusion of styles! Interesting and great fun to watch as we move around the stage (and instruments!), we equally love playing at festivals, events, private parties and just jamming together!

The band's true Scot in every sense of the word! Hailing from Edinburgh, Andy has an appetite for stage performance and blowing audiences away with his pipework!
