Barry Kirk

Barry comes to the Clan Gordon Pipe Band in 2014 with nearly 20 years of piping and pipe band experience and tenures with bands that include the Greater Seattle Police Pipe Band, official Piper for the Washington State Patrol Honor Guard and Washington Scottish Pipe Band. He piped 3 years consecutively as solo piper for the Opening of the Washington State Legislature in the House of Representatives, and Senate. He also performed for the Governor’s State of the State Address. During the Highland Games season, you will find him actively involved in both band and solo piping competition, and thrives in both the band and solo competition arena; a trait shared by the entire Kirk family also in the band. He has attended the Masters of the Scottish Arts school, and continues to receive instruction  from Colin Gemmell. Having retired from careers in both the military and law enforcement, he now enjoys a second law enforcement career as an Investigator.

He is joined by his family, wife Renee-Michelle (Tenor Drum), son Taylor (Snare Drum), son Spencer (Bass Drum), and daughter Heather-Lynn ( Snare Drum and Highland Dancer).
