My favourite player of all time would be Alastair Dunn or Ryan Canning (both of FMMPB). I had the pleasure of playing with ryan at the british in 03 i think it was.

And ofcourse the late Gordon Duncan whom i also played with on the back of a ferry on the way home from ireland in 03.

My favorite is my first teacher, Jerry Pickering.
A very knowledgeable and skilled piper and a man of extreme patience who helped me, at no charge and at great distance with self-made videos, PDF files and encouragement. Still working at getting those pipes Jerry and I practice every day.
18 years of severe untreated sleep apnea struck me down but I am rebuilding slowly.

In terms of well-known pipers (hehe) I would have to say my favs are Angus MacColl and Robert Wallace.

Alasdair Gillies for Army Pipers and Gord Duncan. These two will always be "the Cock of the Walk"!!!

Rufus is unmatched at what he does too,ie.playing jazz-pipes (and irritating bigots and traditionalists who have their heads stuck way up their own airses.)

For Irish Pipes Paddy Keenan is indeed an awesome player.

Alasdair Gillies is defiantly tops in my book, but I do have others I enjoy hearing. Cherry Anderson will still give you a good tune, and who can doubt Donald MacPherson?
