Piping Live! will return from 12th - 20th August 2023. For all the most up to date info on the festival, please subscribe to our newsletter for email updates.
Andy has been playing the pipes for over 30 years now. The main influences on his playing have been Roland Lofthouse, Adrian Schofield, and the recordings of Billy Pigg and Tom Clough.
He won his first piping competition at the age of ten, and went on to become a regular winner at piping competitions around Northumberland, although now he is more usually found on the other side of the judge's table.
In 2002 Andy became a full-time musician and splits his time between playing, making Northumbrian and Uilleann pipes, and teaching. He has released several albums to critical acclaim, both solo and with the Andy May Trio. He also plays regularly with Baltic Crossing, and Jez Lowe and the Bad Pennies, along with various other projects!
He is also in great demand as a teacher of pipes, having tutored on courses around the U.K, Europe, and the U.S.A.
We hope that you can consider making a donation to help keep Piping Live! coming back bigger and better!
