Paul started piping in Scotland in 1972 and has continued playing ever since. He speaks fluent French and German and also has a smattering of Japanese and Russian. He lives in the English Midlands, but will travel anywhere, both in the UK and abroad. He is available 24/7. He has very extensive experience of all types of event, but particularly trade fairs.
