I am hugely grateful to the GDMT for their funding support.

Beyond the financial support awarded towards my project, there was real interest and encouragement from the trust in my desire to publish a second collection of bagpipe music. This gave me much confidence in the project, and a real boost to get stuck in to all that self-publishing a tune book entails.

I am pleased to say my book, EAT SLEEP PIPE REPEAT has been very well received since its launch. I hope in the years to come many tunes from the book will have found their way into pipers and musicians hands, further adding to the array of Scottish music, both traditional and modern, that so many people enjoy.

For all the fantastic work the trust does, in the name of such an influential figure to the whole Scottish music scene and beyond, I hope my project did the trust’s fantastic work justice.

Thank you everyone at the GDMT!
