Raleigh Society Lunchtime Recital: Kate Runciman (Bagpipes)

Kate Runciman is a first-year PhD student, studying palaeontology.  She is from Guelph, Canada, where she started learning the bagpipes at the age of seven.  She now competes at the highest amateur level and has performed in countless events from community services like tree plantings to international spectacles including The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and concert performances with Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Rod Stewart.  Bagpiping has taken Kate across the globe, to countries like China, Norway, Switzerland, and the United States.  She is very grateful for the opportunities and experiences bagpiping has afforded her and she always looks forward to sharing the music she loves with audiences large or small.
