Why hire Bagpipe Associates?
We are very experienced bagpipers having played at hundreds of weddings, funerals, and other events. We are full time professional bagpipe instructors and performers. We will play for all occasions and are readily available for last minute bagpiping needs. We can provide any group size from a single piper, a piper and a drummer, two or three pipers, or a full highland pipe band.
