Christopher has been bagpipes at a professional level for over 18 years. He has competed in Scotland in the World Pipe Band Championships on 3 separate occasions, and has performed all over the United States and Canada. Recently, he has performed as a guest piper at Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst, NC. He is available to play for all types of events including weddings, funerals, parties and fundraisers.
Chris Lewis provided beautiful music for my family at my great-uncle's funeral. My great-uncle was a former Marine who specifically requested bagpipes to be played at the cemetery. Chris played while my family arrived and while they left, and it was exactly what my great-uncle would have wanted. As a musician myself, I look for quality musicians to play at events like this, and I certainly found that in Chris Lewis.
Christopher played both the bagpipes and the trumpet at our son and daughter-in-law's wedding. His wonderful performance made for a beautiful wedding day that they will always treasure. Chris is so professional and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you again!!!!! Carol
Chris came out in a torrential downpour fully dressed in Scottish garb and on time. He was entertaining, polite and very informative. His price was very reasonable. Every one of our residents loved him and we would definetly have him back again.
I booked Chris for our Christmas Eve worship service and it went flawlessly and was well received by the congregation. He was easy to work with, and his smooth sound added nicely to the choir piece. Our organ-trumpet music flowed effortlessly. I plan on hiring him again.
Chris performed at A Celtic Christmas in Doe Run Holiday Concerts 2012. Exceptionally talented and professional musician!!! We loved having him!!!
Chris is an amazingly talented musician, who is capable as a bagpiper, but who also plays tin whistle and is an incredible trumpeter! He is easy to work with, flexible, personable, and combines a love of music with personal enthusiasm and warmth. Not only is he a remarkably talented individual. But he is a warm and engaging young man who is a joy to work with!
