The sound of a bagpipe has a certain magic and nostalgia to it. A festive Irish or Scottish event is made that much better with the sounds of the Scottish Highlands! Of course, no St. Patrick's Day celebration is complete without a rousing bagpiper. And in the somber time of a funeral or memorial service, bagpipes are a resonating and beautiful choice of music. With such a unique sound and appearance, bagpipes make any event instantly more interesting.
Whether you're looking for traditional Irish music or a unique twist on popular hit songs, a bagpiper is just what you need for a festive atmosphere. The price for a professional bagpiper may vary depending on your location, the performer’s experience, travel costs, and whether your event is during a peak holiday season. Be sure to book early! Good bagpipers are in high demand, so many performers will be booked for months in advance. Contact local bagpipers to get more pricing information and compare quotes customized for your event!
To start, search the web for professional bagpipers near you. Most musicians have online profiles to highlight their style and repertoire. Check out their videos and audio clips, and look for a professional with experience in events like yours. If possible, read through reviews and testimonials from their past clients. Feedback is one of the best ways to ensure you’ll book the best. Once you’ve found the bagpiper you’re interested in, contact to ask about their rates and availability. Discuss important details like event location, number of expected guests, length of performance, song requests, and any unique aspect of your event. The more info you give the professional, the easier it is for them to give you an accurate quote. This is also a good time to ask about specifics like their setup requirements or any additional travel fees. When you’ve come to an agreement, you’ll want to put all the specifics in writing. Luckily, GigSalad's platform gives you a streamlined way to discuss the details, confirm the agreement, and securely pay the professional all in one place.
