Bradford.  19th March 1987

A 59-year-old Bradford tailor who is known as the phantom piper of Sunbridge Road, has been honoured by an invitation  to play the bagpipes at the Highland wedding of the daughter of a Scottish clan chieftain.

When Louisa, the daughter of the chief of the Mackintosh Clan goes to St. Andrew;s Cathedral, Inverness, on April 11, to marry Mr. Stuart Cross, she will enter to the sound of bagpipes being played by Mr. Joe McInstoh of Beverely Drive, Wyke, Bradford.  He has been personally invited by the Mackintosh of Mackintosh, as the chief is known, and he is delighted.

Mr. McIntosh started playing the pipes 20 years ago and earned his nickname because he practises in his tailor's workroom at lunchtime to the delight of passers-by.

"I'm over the moon," he said "Fancy the Mackintosh coming all the way from the North of Scotland to find a piper in Bradford."

He first met the Mackintosh, who is also the Lord Lieutenant of Inverness, when he visited his clan museum at Moy Hall, Invernes
