I provide high quality bagpipe music. As a competition piper, I have played against many different bagpipers and won several competitions. I will provide great music and create the perfect atmosphere for Weddings, Funerals, Birthday parties, and more.
Duncan was great- came out for a rehearsal and then on day of wedding guided guests down to the wedding spot on the water. I made a unique entrance on a swan boat accompanied by when Irish eyes are smiling by Duncan. It was magical.
Piper Duncan drove over an hour to participate in the 50th Annual Inkster Memorial Day Parade And he didn’t disappoint! He was extremely friendly, interacted with local residents, and played the entire duration of the parade as well as prior to kickoff. Great performer and very professional!
He did a super job. He was on time and very professional. My mother loved it as well as everyone in the restaurant. He allowed my mom and family to take pics with him. Well worth the money.
Duncan was amazing, professional, and a joy to work with and have as part of our special day. Everyone was thrilled and thoroughly enjoyed his performance! We'd be happy to use his services again and highly recommend him!
Worth every penny!
We hired Piper Duncan to perform at my mom's memorial service. He arrived on time, in full traditional kilt and kit. He delivered an excellent bagpipe performance today. Glad we found him. I would strongly recommend him to others looking for a piper to play at their events.
Piper Duncan has been a pleasure to work with. I would recommend him to anyone in need of his talent.
We recently had Piper Duncan at a fundraising bike ride event where he played at one of the rest stops. He did a phenomenal job!! He was even taking requests from some of the riders! Looking forward to having him back next year!! Thank you Piper!!!!
Piper Duncan performed at a funeral yesterday for a very close family friend. I think the whole church was in tears when he started playing. Very moving. The funeral would not have been the same without him there.
Response from Piper Duncan:
It was my honour to play for the event. Thank you so much for allowing me to play.
It was just the perfect way to catch everyone's attention as Piper Duncan came walking out of the woods playing Scotland the Brave. Then it was wonderful as he finished up with the MSU Fight Song! Thank you so much for helping us to have a wonderful celebration of our interns and residents.

Influences & Inspiration
Many groups have influenced my playing, being the great Scots Guard or pipebands I have played in such as The Glen Erin Pipeband or Grand Traverse Pipes and Drums. I even got to play AC/DC with a cover band, which was a great experience.
