As stated I am an accomplished Grade I level piper. I have competed both solo and band in the US, Canada and Scotland. Having played since age 11, and performed in several midwest bands and groups, I bring a vast knowledge and expertise you do not find with many other pipers. I have performed at thousands of gigs of all sorts and events privately.
Additional Booking Notes
I play both the great highland pipes and Scottish smallpipes. Your engagement may require a bit less volume and I can easily accomodate. The smallpipes have a sound that is about the volume of a fiddle. The border pipes have the full bagpipe sound, but are exactly in tune and have more volume than the smallpipes. The full highland bagpipe is the standard, but is very loud in volume.
I can offer both Scottish and Irish themed music on the bagpipes! We can discuss the appropriate music for your event. No, pop tunes do not sound right, nor are correct on the bagpipes. It is best to let the expert choose the tunes and that would be me! And I have a huge repertoire as well.
