I specialize in funeral services and strive to add a heartfelt presence to your loved ones ceremony. I work with many local funeral homes and churches, and can help plan with you and the funeral director to help make it memorable and special. I will work with your budget, so please contact me.
Another service I provide is piping weddings, either the chapel or reception. I can pipe to honor the memory of those who have passed in a special memorial part of the service.
Also available for church services, memorials, holidays and worship.
Traditional hymns and Scottish & Irish airs inc. Amazing Grace, DannyBoy, Come Thou Fount, Skye Boat Song, Going Home & more.

Dave played the bagpipes at the beginning of a cd release show that I attended and it really energized the crowd. It was an awesome way to kick off the show! He is a great multi instrumentalist and really gets in touch with his roots when he plays the bag pipes. I'd definitely recommend Dave for any event.
I reached out to David on a Monday regarding playing at my mother-in-law's funeral on Tuesday. He responded very quickly to my inquiry & was able to accommodate our request. I had no clue what questions to ask, he articulated how the process usually works. He communicated with me that he was in place at the cemetery which was so helpful & one less thing to worry about that day. Upon arriving at the cemetery he was where he indicated ...dressed immaculately & prepared to perform.
Afterwards, he greeted me & offered his condolences, he couldn't have been kinder.
He had even read her obituary.
Our immediate family & friends wanted to thank him personally at the conclusion. He was very generous with his time in speaking with them. Finally, his fee was far and away the best price of any bagpipe musician we had researched. Thank you again David.
Very Talented young bagpiper.
Price Range: $100-$500+
My name is David Scarborough from Pittsburgh, Pa. I am 3rd generation Scottish, Irish and English. My Scottish heritage has been traced back to the Wilson (Gunn) clan.
I've been serving this great city as a Independent Great Highland Bagpiper for the past decade. I have had many great opportunities as a piper in the area, including the 150th anniversary of the Civil War monument located at Versailles Cemetery, Memorial Day parades and services, Easter church service with the accompaniment of a pipe organ and memorial service at Jergel's prior to a concert.
I specialize in funerals and memorials, and have piped numerous funerals and memorials for families and friends of the deceased in PA, OH and WV, honoring their memory with heartfelt bagpipes.
