Experienced Vancouver-area bagpiper available. Looking for that perfect note for your wedding, birthday party, graduation, delayed memorial because of Covid-19 or any special occasion? A bagpiper is an imaginative and thrilling call. I play outside on your sidewalk, backyard or garden while guests listen, or march into your house/venue as a surprise. I'll play "Happy Birthday", "Scotland the Brave" and all the classics. A great way to send your love. Call anytime.
It was a great surprise for all the guests at my Dad’s celebration of life, the perfect tribute to him.
He would’ve just loved it!
Mike is lovely, played well, plus the entire outfit.... perfect! I was so nice to have him play the bagpipes for us.
Thank you again Mike!
Malcolm was fantastic. He arrived early and we adjusted our plan based on his suggestions and it was a hit with my golf group as well as the others at the golf course. It was my sons birthday the following week and he played Happy Birthday on the pipes as an added bonus. I highly recommend.
Price Range: $200-$300
What to Expect
A highland Scottish bagpiper can play as guests are arriving at a venue: a funeral service, a wedding or lead guests or grieving family members into a memorial. A piper can play the lament at a graveside, and he or she can announce the wedding of a new couple. A birthday isn`t complete without Happy Birthday on the pipes as the cake is brought in. Or an evening isn`t complete until the piper plays down the sun. The possibilities of adding that something special to your event can be delivered by a bagpiper.
There are moments in life when the sound of the bagpipes is the perfect note to celebrate a birthday, commemorate a beginning, an end, or those special occasions when you want to deliver an impact or leave a lasting impression.
A Highland bagpiper stirs emotions at funerals and life celebrations. At weddings, a sense of joy. Special occasions such as birthdays or surprise parties become instantly memorable with a bagpiper. Burns Suppers, graduations, New Year’s parties, a sales event, or marching in head table guests; a bagpiper delivers impact.
