Scottish Piper At A WeddingBag Piper, Bob Ash, now an experienced musician, was fortunate to have been taught by the very best of piping tutors and carries on the skills and traditions handed down to him.

As a teenager, he served as a piper in a Territorial Army unit, was a founder member of the Blue Bonnets (City of London) Pipe Band, a piper with British Caledonian Airways Pipes & Drums, and is now playing and instructing with The Surrey Pipe Band, and teaching pipes at the Gordon's School, near Chobham, Surrey.

Able to turn out in any level of Highland Wear, from day and evening wear to full highland dress uniform: tartans include Royal Stewart, Ancient Caledonian, Red and Hunting Robertson.

Bob has performed several times on TV, including the hit single “I have a Dream” on Top of the Pops, and has performed around the world including North and South America, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and South East Asia.

His services can be tailored precisely to your requirements and can include a
selection of varied musical preferences.
