Reliable bagpiper with 10 years experience. I am available for weddings, graduations, memorials, civic events, funerals, etc. I will work with you to enhance your event with music.
Price Range: $200 and up.
What to Expect
I arrive early and work with the point of contact/event planner to determine what exactly will work best. I note things like ceiling and doorway height, where I may enter or exit, duration of play and any special concerns such as small children or others who may not appreciate an instrument as loud as bagpipes. I will be honest with you in my assessment of what will work and what we should consider modifying if necessary.
I was trained by noted bagpiper and adjudicator Bruce Burt of Detroit. I have been playing for a little over ten years. During that time I have performed at all manner of events. For the last six years, until my retirement, I was the bagpiper for the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office Honor Guard. I am the Pipe Sgt for the Gr4 Dunedin Pipe Band.
Additional Booking Notes
I would rather not play in the rain for an extended period of time. I need approximately 8' from floor to ceiling to accommodate the height of my pipes. It can be very difficult to play and walk through rough terrain but we can work through it.
I need a place to tune up for approximately 30 minutes before a performance. Preferably one free of background noise as possible. A parking lot, behind the building in question or other area is fine.
