The Piping Services network is now managed by Andy Melvin and Iain Melvin. Iain joined in 2001 with Dave Johnston who now successfully runs Chicalba Bagpiping Services in Chicago.
Iain and Andy are both former Pipe Majors with a combined experience of nearly 50 years served in this position. Andy having lead Williamwood Pipe Band to two successive world championships in consecutive grades. Possibly the first time this has ever been achieved.
We work closely with Williamwood Pipe Band, Iain is a founding piper of Saltire Beat and Andy is a past president of the Sandyford Burns Club. We have have over the years acquired a rich depth of different musicians, speakers and Toast Masters.
