Welcome to the internet site for Simon McKerrell where I will share music, ideas, upcoming gigs and other interests.  I am a lecturer in music at Newcastle University and performer of both Highland and Uilleann pipes. 

My professional webpages are available here.

I have recently completed a major research project sponsored by the Arts and Humanities Research Council in the UK entitled Understanding Scotland Musically

News of upcoming gigs, papers, talks and festivals is available here.

I also maintain a blog here.
