Stuart Liddell

Bagpiper Stuart Liddell is one of a new breed of young, exciting and innovative pipers. From his home in Inverary, he has tapped into a rich Argyll piping heritage, with early instruction from his grandfather P/M Ronald McCallum, and later tuition from Arthur Gillies and Hugh McCallum, his uncle. He has a formidable reputation as a free thinking performer in recital, but has also proved himself on the competition circuit with a number of prestigious wins.

Stuart’s solo achievements include the Silver Medal at the 1992 Argyllshire Gathering, the Gold Medal at the 2000 Northern Meeting, and most recently, the Gold Medal at the 2004 Argyllshire Gathering. A former member of the ScottishPower Pipe Band for six years, he currently plays with the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band, helping them to win their World Championships in 1999 and 2001.

Stuart Liddell appears on Vol II of the 1997 Piping Centre Recital Series (COMD2076), available on Temple Records
