Authentic Scottish-born bagpiper in the Portland area. I enjoy playing for weddings, birthday parties, golf tournaments, retirement parties, memorials and charity events all over Oregon and Washington.
Gordon is absolutely awesome. Kind, professional and a wonderful bagpiper. Excellent
Gordon was exceptional, I would definitely hire him again. He was very easy to communicate with, punctual and polite. His music is some of the best I’ve heard - I’m an event planner and have high expectations and he exceeded mine.
We were fortunate enough to have Gordon at my mother’s birthday, he was so kind to her. When she recently passed, we were so pleased to find him again. Through this difficult situation he was so kind, and went above & beyond to bless our family. Yes, an amazing musician, but an amazing person as well. Thank you, Gordon. -The Wolfe Family
Gordon worked his magic today at my husband's celebration of life service. He is very friendly, kind and accommodating. He was very professional and everyone loved him. I highly recommend Gordon. He knows what he is doing. He showed up early and made beautiful music. It was such an honor to have him pipe for us today. You can't go wrong with Gordon. He is the absolute BEST.
Way more than I expected. Gordon was very personable and cordial. I highly recommend his skills and personality.
Gordon was very cordial and easy to work with. He was able to play the songs requested from memory. We would recommend Gordon to all. Very thankful he was able to come to our event.
Price Range: $100-400
