Perth teenager Brodie Barrie truly is piping hot in the local music world.
The 13-year-old Perth Academy pupil is rapidly making a name for herself as a piper.
One of her latest gigs came at a citizenship ceremony for foreign nationals at Perth and Kinross Association of Voluntary Service.
People from several nations were enthralled by Brodie’s playing.
Her recent successes have included coming first in a chanter competition, winning a solo event and being named most improved piper and most outstanding prospect in the Vale of Atholl band, one of Scotland’s most prominent pipe bands.
On top of that, Brodie piped in the new year at Perth’s Queen’s Hotel.
Mum Samantha said: “Brodie started playing the chanter four years ago and, 18 months after that, she started playing the pipes.
“It was a school project at Goodlyburn Primary that got Brodie interested.
“Since then she has worked hard to develop her piping skills.
“She not only practices once a week with the Vale of Atholl but every day at home. That shows how dedicated she is
“Brodie is really very keen on her piping and she is thinking about taking a music course at school.
“Her piping so far has been confined to Scotland but maybe one day she will perform in other countries.”
The Vale of Atholl band regular competes in major events such as highland games.
Last year the band had another great World Championships, finishing in 10th place in the Grade 1 final with four solid performances.
And its Grade 4 band finished in eighth position in its category.
