Graduate of Institute of Piping, Glasgow, Scotland. Graduate EUSPBA, Piping Adjudicator, Fellow Scottish Dance Teachers Alliance, Former Highland Dance Adjudicator. I teach Piping as a course at Phillips Exeter and Andover, St Paul's School and Groton School. I also teach the NH Police Assoc Pipes and Drums and the NH PIpes and Drums Grade 4 and 5 bands. My school, the NH School of Scottish Arts trains solo pipers to compete at all levels as well as Highland Dancers and fiddlers. I perform and direct in Celtic concerts. I am one of the top professional pipers in the North Eastern US. At 57 years old I have spent my entire lifetime (and from 18 years old as a professional) in this field and have a very large repertoire as well as many experiences to draw from. I use Gig salad to get gigs - especially on weekends to help supplement my income.
Campbell Webster: Piper, drummer, fiddler
Marielle Webster: Fiddler, Highland Dancers
My teaching and performing Piobaireachd was influenced by Donald MacPherson, Glasgow, Duncan Johnstone, College of Piping, Ed Neigh, Ontario Canada.
My fiddle background of tunes I attribute to Barbara McOwen and Alastair Fraser with inspiration from my two children who both play fiddle.
My Pipe Band experience began in Canada winning Gr 4 at 16 thanks to Archie Cairns. Jake Watson gave me further challenge with a Grade 2 band and then Worcester Kilties completed my Pipe Band challenges. I started the Boston Police Pipe Band, resurrected the Boston Fire Band and now teach the NH Police Pipe Band and NH PIpes and Drums, Grades 4 and 5.
What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 15 - 4 minutes
From pastoral serene pieces for funerals or before wedding services to upbeat tunes as recessionals for a wedding, bagpipe music can be a mood changer for an entire group. Besides Highland Pipes, smallpipes can be played for a quieter version. Scottish, Irish music - either one or both. Specific tunes can be learned for special events. Adaptations of fiddle tunes or hymns can also be done.
mic for smallpipes, fiddles
Highland Pipes do not need a mic in general. Smallpipes do unless a very quiet setting.
Most Scottish or Irish Pipe tunes are on our lists. After 50 years there are not many tunes that I have not played.
With my children, fiddle tunes can be Irish, Cape Breton and Scottish...
