Chris Ormston

Chris Ormston is the talented  piper accompanying Katrina Porteous on the CD ‘The Wund and the Wetter’ and has also often been seen working with her at events.

It seems right to devote a little space to explaining more about him and his work.

 

Here is his own description of his piping background 

and Chris is playing ‘Dorrington Lads’ here

In 2019 he accompanied Katrina at the Northumbrian gathering, and here he is talking about the experience
