I am very grateful for the support from the Gordon Duncan Memorial Trust this year.  I have used my award to promote and create a distinctive personal voice as a piper in relation with Scottish Traditional Music.  I have also been working on my performance and development with other instruments and musicians.  This year, I have also had more of a focus on music theory and digital literacy.  I have also been successful with limited online competitions and playing on the Big Rab Show and playing at piping live.  I am also continuing to take lessons on a weekly basis for my long term tutor Willie Morrison.  I am very grateful for the support in my piping career and my study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Thanks to everyone at the Gordon Duncan Memorial Trust.
