Dear visitor,

 

  My name is Daniel Johnston and my experience as a musician started when I was 8 years old and I wanted to follow in my dad’s footsteps in playing piano.  A few years later, when I arrived at secondary school, I decided that I wanted to learn to play the bagpipes – so I asked my mum to write a note to my music teacher asking if that would be possible.

 

  Now, fast-tracking through the highlights since then, I spent my time at school gaining vital experience in performing in front of large audiences and at private events.  In 2012, I was first invited to play for the Ayrshire Chamber of Commerce’s annual dinner; it was also the year in which I was made the official piper for the Provost of East Ayrshire.  One of my favourite experiences was playing at the SECC in Glasgow, to an audience of 3000, as part of a celtic rock band.  This was an experience that I was given the opportunity to relive two years later as part of the I Was There concert).  On top of all of this, I’ve also played at various events for groups such as the Scottish Football Association, the National Trust for Scotland, and Virgin Money; as well as at venues like the European Parliament (in Strasbourg).  Nowadays, aside from playing at wedding, I am a proud member of Kilmarnock Pipe Band who, after winning the 2017 Scottish Championships (4B), have been steadily rising through the rankings since their revival in 2016.

 

  It has always been my belief that music adds something quite profound and memorable to any occasion.  So, if you are considering booking me, I make this my “professional statement” to you.

  No task is too onerous or difficult for Daniel as he is a wonderful person with a sense of gravity and humour in equal measure... I don't think Daniel would have any difficulty with any musical instrument!  I have no hesitation in endorsing Daniel for any role he undertakes, especially piping!
