When Lorne Cousin received a voicemail from Madonna on his home phone asking him to call her, the Edinburgh lawyer thought his friends were playing a practical joke. But now the lawyer from Campbeltown, who is one of Scotland's top pipers, has taken leave from his job with Edinburgh law firm Turcan Connell to appear on stage with the world famous singer.
Lorne is to play a four-minute piece of Scottish music in 47 shows in the USA, Canada and Europe over the next five months. Douglas Connell, joint senior partner at Turcan Connell, said: "An opportunity of this magnitude does not present itself every day and we are absolutely delighted to support Lorne in this venture. I am sure he will prove to be a very worthy ambassador for both Turcan Connell and Scotland." Who said conveyancers were dull?
