About the Author: Archie McNeil Cairns was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario, and began piping at age 9 with his father, Pipe Major John Knox Cairns, Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders of Canada (P.L.), as his tutor. After 13 years with the Argylls, in 1954 he enrolled in the Regular Force and was posted to Camp Petawawa where, as Pipe Major, he formed and trained the Pipes and Drums of 2nd Battalion The Canadian Guards, serving with the Battalion for over 10 years. In December 1964 he transferred to the RCAF as Pipe Major of the Pipe Band at Station Rockcliffe, Ottawa, where he trained a prize-winning band. In 1968, Cairns retired from active solo competition, having won almost every major award in Eastern Canada and North Eastern USA. He retired from the Regular Force in 1981 and enrolled in the Reserve Force. He was promoted to Major in 1983. Major Cairns dedicated almost 60 years of his life to piping, with his main tutors being his father, John Wilson and John MacLellan. His most outstanding pupil is his son, John, who succeeded him as CO of the Cadet School of Pipes & Drums in London, Ontario. Major Cairns is an accomplished piper whose sole profession has been that of a Piper, Pipe Major, International Adjudicator/Lecturer/Teacher, Piping Consultant/Advisor, etc. Many of his published compositions for pipes have been recorded internationally. The complete article from which this information is excerpted appears in his book Pipe Music - Book 1.
