In 2010 the Bad Piper was on Australia’s Got Talent where he made it all the way to the semi-finals. Now, he is quickly becoming world recognised for his flame-throwing, heavy metal approach to playing the Bag Pipes. He was knocked out by the eventual runner up Cameron Henderson. The winner of season 4’s Americas Got Talent was Justice Crew.
Brian McFadden is quoted saying, “You treated that like a lead guitarist in a rock band, I’ve never heard a bagpipe used like that before” in The Bad Piper’s Australia’s Got Talent Audition”.
Despite not winning the talent show, The Bad Piper is an act not to miss! Completely unique, his performance is like mixing a fire eater with a Scottish national pride ceremony. Following his performances on the AGT talent show, the Badpiper was invited to travel and perform with the Crusty Demons on their national tour of Australia. The Crusty Demons are a group of daredevil freestyle motorcyclists from the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.
