Alba Bagpipes was established by Barry Evans, a Scottish bagpiper with over 20 years experience. 
Early in 2010 Barry decided to join together his recent University degree with his passion for piping, with the result being Alba Bagpipes.  Barry has been fortunate enough to play in some of the finest Pipe Bands the North East of Scotland has to offer including the Grampian Police Pipe Band and the Buchan Pipe Band.  Most recently Barry was a playing member of the Grade 1 Tayside Police Pipe Band.  The years of experience gained by Barry is translated into the expert and professional service provided  by Alba Bagpipes.  This ensures client satisfaction first time….every time.


Although primarily situated in the Grampian area, Alba Bagpipes has links with other professional Scottish bagpipers throughout Scotland and can help facilitate the booking of a Scottish Bagpiper almost anywhere in the country.  No job is too big or small and we work closely with all of our clients to ensure they receive a top class musical service.
