Tim Hamlett and his pipe band

Every two weeks in Hong Kong Baptist University, you can heard drum rolling, pipe ringing  all over the campus. That would be Professor Tim Hamlett and his pipe band- Hong Kong’s St. Andrew’s Pipe Band.

Hamlett and his pipe band have been practicing and playing together since 2004, and they performed in some other Asian countries such as Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Indonesia. They also do performances across Hong Kong during the Chinese New Year and Christmas.

“I didn’t know how to play this Scottish traditional instrument until I came to Hong Kong.” Englishman Hamlett said. 

Hamlett and his 22 other teammates come from different backgrounds, but share the same enthusiasm for Scottish music.

“It was nice, we have a great time playing together. When it all works, it was fun.” Mr. Hamlett said.
