EVENT PIPER

A lasting musical memory can also be added to any event through the playing of the Great Highland Bagpipe.  I am available to play for the Corporate and Event Industry, at Company or Organisation Dinners, for Scottish Celebrations, for Product Launches, at Hotels, for Recitals and for T.V. and Film work.

As well as providing a Piping Service for you I can also assist you in supplying a harpist or clarsach player, a fiddle and guitar duo, a trio consisting of keyboard, fiddle and guitar or a Celidh Band/Wedding Band. 

Please use the Contact Form above if you want me to help.

Recently I played at the pre-Rugby World Cup Tests at Murrayfield, at the Radisson Hotel in Glasgow welcoming guests to a Charity Dinner and then piping them into the dinner and at a Conference at the SECC, the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centscottish exhibition and conference centrere.
