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 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

He's lived in the United States for over eight years and continues to enjoy piping for a variety of events including charities, golf tournaments, and memorials; he was honored to pipe in Diana Gabaldon, author of the Outlander series, when she visited Portland.
