John Campbell, Bagpiper in South Wales.
I've played the Great 'Highland' Bagpipes for 16 years, 5 years in a competing pipe band that achieved 2 major championship wins.
I now compete in Solo Bagpiping competitions with the 'Competition League for Amateur Solo Pipers' (CLASP), organised by the National Piping Centre in Glasgow. Notable results can be found on my Competitions page 'Competitions Results & Info'
I enjoy performing at my best for audiences and would relish the opportunity to add a musical touch to your special occasion. I have received many positive comments, a selection of which can be viewed by clicking my 'Website Testimonials Page' or my 'Freeindex Testimonials Page'.
I was born in Wales & live near Cardiff, but I am prepared to travel across South Wales and Adjacent Counties. My two kilt designs are 'Campbell of Argyll (Modern)' & 'Campbell of Cawdor (Modern)' reflecting my late father's Scottish background. Both designs can be viewed on my 'Home page' & in various photos in 'Photo Galleries'.
I am a proud member of the My Wonderful Welsh Wedding - Home of the Wedding Guild of Wales. An organisation where membership can only be obtained by client recommendations over an extended period.
I am also featured with 1st Class Weddings
