I have been involved in hoochter teuchter music since I was at school, spending many years playing in pipe bands in villages and towns all round Scotland. Many weekend afternoons were happily spent marching behind horses and carts in the rain, eating chips on coaches, fending off midges and heroically navigating through crowds of drunken tourists and locals at the annual Cowal Games in Dunoon with my sporran intact.
Having been a huge radio fan all my life, I’m now looking forward to stripping your willows for you on Sunday mornings.
