One of the things I enjoy the most is to give piping recitals. I have given many over the years to different audiences ranging from piping societies to folk clubs and other musical appreciation groups. For me they represent a chance to learn and perform a great range of pipe tunes but also a chance to engage with the audience by telling a few stories and anecdotes I have picked up during a lifetime in piping.

Over the years, I have often been asked to combine a teaching workshop in the early part of the day with a recital in the evening. This type of event often gives groups the chance to offer some teaching to local youngsters or bands and then widen things out to a broader community for an evening recital. I have always found this to be an enjoyable mix of activities.
