Andrew Hahn was born and raised in a small town

tucked away in the hills of Northern San Diego County. He began piping at twelve, inspired by his father, Jeff, learning to play a couple years prior.

After a slow start, he launched his competitive career by sweeping Grade 4 solos on his first outing, courtesy of instruction by Campbell Naismith.

Heand his father both joined the House of Scotland Pipe Band around this time, whom they played with at the World Pipe Band Championships in 2014.

Andrew climbed the local competitive ranks, making massive leaps in musical progress through attending the College of Piping summer school programs (now the Robert McLintock School of Piping and Drumming). Eventually he received national recognition as a young and upcoming piper and was selected to compete at invitational contests such as the Balmoral and George Sherriff Memorial competition on the east coast of the U.S and Canada.

Andrew has performed with groups such as the San Diego Symphony, the Chieftains, and even the Wicked Tinkers on occasion!

In 2015 he joined the Grade 2 Prince Charles Pipe Band out of San Francisco. In 2017, the band made their way to the Festival Interceltique de Lorient, then the World Pipe Band Championships in 2018. These two experiences were instrumental in shaping Andrew's understanding of music, and propelled him toward where he is today.

In 2023 he was invited to join Lincoln Hilton in the ranks of Haileybury Pipes and Drums at the World Championships where the band went on to become the Grade 3b world champions.

He now tutors the House of Scotland Pipe Band and teaches a growing body of students.

Andrew receives ongoing instruction from Scott Ruscoe.
