As a small boy I saw during the entry of the Four Days March in Nijmegen (The Netherlands), for the first time a group of pipes and drums. I thought that was great and wanted to do that when I was a grown-up. A few years later, well many years later, I walked along as a piper myself. In the mean time I performed in Holland, Germany, Denmark, Russia, Belgium and France and gained experience with: Batavorum Pipes and Drums (NL), The Holland Massed Pipes and Drums (NL), The German Lowland Pipes and Drums (D), The 48th Highlanders of Holland Pipes and Drums (NL), The Crossed Swords Pipes and Drums (EU), and The Music Show Scotland (EU). And as a piper for special occasions. As a solo-piper in full-dress, I wear the ancient colours of the Hunting tartan from Kerr.
