About Brendon Fairbairn

Brendon is a 5th generation Southlander with strong Scottish ancestry. As well as being an A grade Solo Piper, he is also an accomplished Harmonica player. Tuaght by Ron Milne of Kennington, he has played at the world Pipe Band champs and Edinburgh military Tatoo with the City of Invercargill Caledonian Pipe Band. He has written a number of tunes, not only for the Great Highland Bagpipe, but also for his folk band ‘Run the Cutter” (Finalists in the 2001 Tui Awards). Many of these tunes were featured in the Matara Kilties Pipe Band Centennial CD “Moments in Time”, a band that he has been Pipe Major of, and currently fills the role of musical director for.

Coming from a trades background has placed him in good steed for the challenges of Bagpipe making & restoration. Mentoring from Jack Phillips of Auckland, Brendon has been working towards the establishment of The New Zealand Bagpipe Company since 2001.
