My name is Jim Hall. After playing the pipes for over 30 years on every continent, I consider myself an experienced piper. Originally from Alloa, Central Scotland, I joined the Army at sixteen years of age, receiving instruction at the Army School of Bagpipe Music at Bridge of Don Aberdeen. Subsequently, I studied at the Army school of Piping in Edinburgh Castle. I served with The 1st Battalion The Argyll And Sutherland Highlanders.
I spent many years in London where I was appointed Pipe Major of the British Airways Pipe Band. My piping performance has brought me from Scotland to England, Australia, Denmark, Eire, USA, Canada, Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Bermuda, Antigua, Panama, Honduras, Zambia, Greece, France, Italy, Taiwan, the Philippines, South Korea, Australia and the Falkland Islands.
I have played for members of the Royal Family including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as well as for both British and Australian Prime Ministers.
Presently, I reside in Seaham County Durham in the North East of England.
