Hamish Moore

Scotland

Both as a piper and as a pipemaker, Hamish Moore has had a vital influence on the Scottish piping scene over the past three decades. In concerts and recordings, Hamish’s playing has carried the torch for a revival of interest in bellows-blown pipes which has seen them become commonplace on the piping and wider folk scene. Hamish, who founded and established the world famous Ceolas summer school in South Uist, has also been at the forefront of a renaissance promoting a pre-military style of piping. Hamish has long been particularly fascinated by the styles of piping common in Scotland before the standardization of Highland piping under the military bands and the competition circuit, which led to his interest in the Cape Breton music and dance which crossed the Atlantic with Scottish emigrants during the 18th and 19th centuries.
