About Alba Bagpipes

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 Grampian Police Pipe Band, Buchan Pipe Band and most recently Police Scotland Fife. In late 2016 Barry handed full reins of Alba Bagpipes to his younger brother Rikki Evans. The company continues to provide that professional excellent service which it based itself on at the very beginning.
Alba Bagpipes have an array of professional pipers, highland dancers, drummers, guitarists & a singer available to hire which will compliment any type of event. Alba Bagpipes have also created an all Scottish based music show called The Granite City Scottish Music Show. This show is owned and produced by Alba Bagpipes and is fully packed with piping, dancing & top quality Scottish entertainment. Alba Bagpipes also has a great connection with pipe bands in the North East of Scotland and through ourselves you can book a pipe band for any event.
Each Alba Bagpiper has a minimum of 15 years piping experience and our pipers have competed or currently compete in the top piping grades in the world. All of our pipers can wear the full military uniform if requested. Our pipers also have experience performing on the world stage and some have been lucky enough to have been part of the massed pipes & drums at The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
