Why hire Piper Dave?
Thought about having a piper at your wedding? The sound of the Highland Bagpipe can help you celebrate your big day in style. It will add a stirring, romantic atmosphere and is always a nice finishing touch on your special day. The powerful sound will make your wedding unique and one that you'll remember for a long time.
Need a piper for a special occasion such as an anniversary, birthday party or funeral? I have been playing the bagpipes at special occasions for over 30 years. I was "Pipe Major" of the Scarborough Red Hackle Pipes and Drums, and before that I competed with the 48th Highlanders Cadet Band.
Please contact me if you require more information about my services.

I started playing the bagpipes at the age of 12 and have continued to play over the past 33 years! I was "Pipe Major" in the Scarborough Red Hackle Pipes and Drums and have competed in several competitions over the years.
