Lorne MacDougall on SoundBetter

Musically qualified, award winning Bagpiper specialising in session bagpipes. Open for advice, collaboration and brainstorming! Also performer of Celtic Winds (Low Whistle, Penny Whistle etc).

Lorne MacDougall is one of Scotland's leading contemporary bagpipers and musicians. He is known for seamlessly integrating his sounds into outstanding soundtracks with credits ranging from movies including “Brave”, “Whisky Galore” and “How to Train Your Dragon 2” to television shows like “Doctor Who” and “Thunderbirds”. His musical talents have brought the attention of such luminaries as Academy Award Nominated composer John Powell describing him as “clearly a hybrid who really does understand the rest of the musical world from the point of view of a being a piper”. Most recently he recorded the bagpipes for Thomas Newman's score for "Victoria and Abdul" starring Dame Judi Dench.

Lorne is one of Scotland leading innovative traditional musicians. Recent times have seen him achieve a 2012 MG Alba Scots Music Awards Instrumentalist of the Year Nomination and previously placed 3 times in the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year Final. He has an Honours Degree in Scottish Music specialising in Bagpipes.

    Lorne did a great job on our song, his pipes added a lot of flavor. Would definitely work with him again.
