Bagpiper for Funeral Edinburgh

Piper for Funeral – As much that a bagpiper plays in in times of celebration and joy, the bagpipes have for centuries been synonymous with times of mourning and remembrance. Having a bagpiper for a funeral is an ancient tradition in Scotland. As a piper for funerals in Edinburgh, I can help you mark the passing of a loved one by playing poignant music and celebratory music if desired, at appropriate points during the day of a funeral. If desired, I can dress in the ceremonial Piper’s No.1 Full Highland Dress, adding further dignity and respect to the service.

I’m a funeral piper for Burials, Cremations, and Scattering of Ashes cermonies, for all beliefs and denominations.

A funeral of a loved one is a deeply personal occasion. I know from experience that arranging a funeral is a very difficult, and you may not know when a piper at a funeral should play. The service you have planned will be unique and will reflect the wishes of you and the departed loved one’s family. As a funeral piper I am here to compliment your plans.

This is often best discussed on the telephone or in-person, so I will contact you as soon as possible if you are looking a bagpiper for a funeral.

Bagpiper for Funeral – Scattering of Ashes

Having a piper play at a Scattering of Ashes cermony for a departed loved one, provides a tremendous send-off. I am always very honoured to play a part in such an occasion.

Such an occasion will obviously be entirely unique to you and your family, and may be performed at many entirely different types of location. Please get in touch to discuss your plans further. I would love to help you mark the occasion.
