Catriona Norman

Catriona is 15 and a student at McLaren High School in Callander.

She started learning bagpipes at the age of 6 and also plays smallpipes, fiddle and drums and composes her own pipe tunes.

Catriona was originally a member of the Davidsons Mains and District Pipe Band where she had her first taste of performing and competing. Following her family’s move to the Trossachs, she then joined Strathendrick Pipe Band, and later the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service Pipe Band.

She currently focuses her time on solo competing and performances, taking part in various solo competitions and music festivals. Her love of music spans both the pipe band and trad band scenes.

With her acceptance into the Junior Conservatoire of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow, where she started studying in Autumn 2019, she is looking forward to further refining her skills and exploring new opportunities to perform traditional music.
