Grade 1 bagpiper Jonathan Graham has played since the age of 10, his raw talent gaining him numerous awards as a solo piper. He developed an interest in bagpipes from an early age through hearing his Grandfather play on a regular basis. Jonny is a piping tutor in his hometown of Glasgow’s world renowned National Piping Centre and graduated in 2012 with a 1st class Honours degree in Scottish music at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
He is a successful solo competitive piper and has played in many pipe bands, most recently the prestigious Scottish Power Pipe Band, and has also travelled the world representing Scotland with the National Youth Pipe Band. Due to this wealth of experience in all contexts of piping he is often asked to speak to journalists and film crews about Scottish music, history and culture when they visit Scotland.
For a man of 25, Jonathan has gained much life experience, for example; being invited to perform at New York’s Tartan Week celebrations in 2005 & 2011, has appeared on various tv shows including Blue Peter, Flog It & Channel 4s ‘T4?, has been invited to various countries in Europe to perform & teach at schools, has become a regular at the prestigious ‘McCrimmon Trophy’ piping competition in Lorient, and has also travelled to Mongolia to compete in the ‘Gobi Challenge’ – a 140mile ultra-marathon across desert terrain- at the age of 17, the youngest person by 10 years to ever do this.
