Professional bagpiper with over 25 years experience playing for any occasion across the USA and Canada. My experience playing for small and large audiences allows me to be flexible with the needs of clients and traditional protocol to assure memorable events. From weddings, funerals, reunions and demonstrations my love of playing the pipes can be enjoyed by all. Whether you need a bagpiper tomorrow or months ahead, I am available at anytime for any occasion.
I have experienced the privilege of Dale piping for 3 family funerals over the past 10 years. Most recently, he performed for my wedding ceremony. Dale's lifetime experience shows as he is always early to every event, consults on what music to play, and how the music is to be included in the event.
He even took the time to help me attach my fly plaid for my own wedding as it was my first time going full-formal in a kilt.
Dale never misses a beat, and will command the reverence and meaning behind whatever event he is playing for.
Very professional. Booked on short notice. Did a wonderful job. Would highly recommend!
Response from Dale Hawkins- Bagpiper:
Thank you again for having me. It was an honor to play for you and your family.
Dale did a fantastic 'march around' of our event center! The guest loved following him to their seats too! Love hearing the old motherland music at our Irish/English celebration!
Dale did an awesome job at my fathers funeral. He displayed a level of class and respect that we'll always remember.
Dale Hawkins did an amazing job at my father's funeral.
Dale is a very kind person and we enjoyed meeting him. He was willing to do whatever we wanted. Most of all, he sounded amazing. Many thanks!
Dale came highly recommended and I'd do the same. His professionalism and knowledge was evident from the start. He knew all the songs requested and offered suggestions that made the service perfect. Being of Scottish heritage I know what good bagpipers sound like and he is one of the best. Thanks again Dale!
