Default Durham NC Piping Instructors?

I have someone, living in Durham NC, who is interested in beginning the bagpipes. Any suggestions for tutors in that area? Thanks.

I'd check out this fellow ... professional level piper, and in the next town over.

There's a lot of piping in that area.

Here's a good resource too.

I can wholeheartedly give a loud "second" to Nate's recommendation above!

Original poster, how did the prospective learner make out?

I would suggest TWO folks in Durham proper who have a good background in teaching and have taught many over the years who are now doing quite well:

Bruce Wright - in Durham....particularly good with young folks, owner of The Carolina Celt (great source for supplies....his own basement/garage business).

Darryl Thompson - currently instructor for the NC State University pipe band program. Both really good guys, and both have a track record with pupils produced who have succeeded with their playing.
