Glenbervie Folk Duo
Neil and Kathryn formed Glenbervie Folk Duo in 2015, having both previously played in Folk sessions and other groups.
We have a unique blend of instruments, featuring a seldom heard combination of Scottish smallpipes and clarinet, along with Highland pipes, guitar, whistles, vocals and others.
We specialise in providing the historical stories and background to our tunes and songs, which although predominantly Scottish, are not exclusively so! We have performed worldwide at places including the Falkland Islands, San Diego, Germany, and throughout the British Isles at Ardersier Folk Festival, Yn Chruinnaght on the Isle of Man, and at local arts festivals.
We regularly combine Scottish music and history for schools’ groups and have done so locally at Callendar House in Falkirk.

Unpaid Charity Work
As part of our commitment to the community, Both Falkirk Piping and Glenbervie are available for performances for REGISTERED CHARITIES. We would like to slot in at least one performance per month, so if your group could use our services, please let us know and we’ll do our best to help. Please note, the more notice you can give us, the better chance we will have of playing at your event. No travel charges apply in the Scottish Central belt.
Our chosen charity is Parkinson’s UK, as Neil’s dad has the condition. They have a very active local group in Falkirk and half the money raised goes to this group. We do occasional performances for them and Neil plays pipes at their annual walk at the Kelpies. Contributions can be made here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/neil-clark28
Please contact us below, or on 07796926556
We also have a Highland Dancer available for performances, either in her own right or with Neil playing bagpipes.
Kayleigh Boardman is a Highland Dancer who has years of experience dancing at events, both locally and abroad (military tattoos, Tartan Day Parade in NYC and Outlander events). She has performed on TV for the BBC and the series Outlander and is also a qualified dance teacher.
Please contact us if you’d like to include a performance with Kayleigh at your event.
