My audience will probably experience everything from joy to sadness depending on the occasion. I play a lot of funerals and weddings. I also do a 30 minute performance for parties called a "Bagpipergram". This program has a lot of variety of music and some education thrown in.
Additional Booking Notes
Nothing needed. I come ready to play in my kilt.
Gary Guth-Bagpiper For Hire
I started out as a piano player back in the 6th Grade. I was very motivated and wanted to be a good pianist. After moving around as my father was transferred I started playing the bagpipes in a High School Marching Band. I took up the instrument because I wanted to play in a Marching Band. The Director told me that it was 9 notes with no sharps or flats and I felt that I could learn to play quickly as we would be moving again shortly. After we did move, I played with various bagpipe bands in and around the Los Angeles area. I also competed in bagpipe competitions. I was very serious about this instrument and still am. Today I am a full time bagpiper teaching about 40 students per week, I have a bagpipe band called The Lord of The Lord of the Isles Pipe Band that plays locally here in Bucks County. I also sell bagpipes for Gibson Bagpipes of Willoughby, OH and Wallace Bagpipes of Glasgow, Scotland.
I play weddings, funerals and special events on a regular basis. I play an extensive repertoire to accommodate any event.

Thank you very much for your wonderful performance. Everyone was so impressed! I received calls from all the partygoers today and they all said that not only was your playing beautiful, your talk on Scottish history and the story of the bagpipe was fascinating. Everything was so first rate and professional! Gary, I'd like to do this again next year (my relatives are demanding it). Could you put me down for January 26, 2008?
