David Faulkner has been playing English Border Pipes for over 30 years. He has played with groups such as Zephyrus and the Eel Grinders. Since he started playing David has been researching and developing repertoire for the pipes. David is self-taught and is interested in finding his own voice on the instrument; developing his own technical and emotional response to the music he plays. He plays music for concerts and dances.
Playing in various bands, duos and solo, David has toured in Europe, America and Canada. Highlights would be playing at the William Kennedy Piping Festival (Armagh, Ireland) and the Saint Chartier Festival (France). David runs piping courses and teaches pipes regularly. He also works as a community folk musician and runs three weekly mixed instrument Community Folk Orchestras and conducts one monthly mandolin orchestra!
