Craig Turnbull – Secretary

Craig Turnbull learned the pipes in the Boys' Brigade and played competitively until the early 90's when his day job started to get in the way. A pupil of the late Duncan Johnstone, the highlight of his (singularly unsuccessful) solo career was a second place in the hornpipe and jig at the Ashbourne Highland Games in 1992 – playing two of his own compositions. His composing career is marginally more successful – two of his tunes being published in Ryan Canning's "The Full Monty" collection.

Craig first met Dougie Pincock when they both played in the Grade One City of Glasgow Pipes & Drums. Married with two children, Craig lives in Glasgow and is presently the managing partner of one of Scotland's leading commercial law firms.
