John Campbell, Bagpiper in South Wales.

I've played the Great 'Highland' Bagpipes for 18 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 in various photos in 'Photo Galleries'.
