This piper has performed several times on TV, including the hit single “We Have A Dream” by John Gordon Sinclair & B. A. Robertson, on Top of the Pops.

versions of the pipes are played as traditional instruments in many
countries around the world. It is quite common to have a piper or piper and
drummer at Asian weddings. If someone has a connection with the military a
piper is also a common feature. It some cases, it's just because the person
loves the sound of the pipes or wants something that creates a moving impact
