Why book me?

No doubt when you search for a bagpiper, you’ll see many websites, social media sites and entertainment agencies, all advertising the services of various bagpipers. Many of these bagpipers are very good and I highly recommend them, but unfortunately there are many whom I do not.

Here’s why I’m the best bagpiper for you.

I’m a Grade 1 Piper

My prices

My prices are extremely competitive for a bagpiper of my standard, and wearing the quality of uniform that I do. I wear the ceremonial Piper’s No.1 Full Highland Dress as standard, and I don’t charge any extra for this.

For Weddings my price of £275 for my Wedding Ceremony and Reception package, which includes wearing the Piper’s No.1 Full Highland Dress, and playing the Scottish Small Pipes is very reasonable. Many other pipers and music agencies will charge around £350 for this same service. Many do not advertise their prices on their website. Often your event is sub-contracted to another piper, whom you will see very little information about.

I do not act as an agency. If I am unavailable for your event, I am happy to recommend one of my trusted bagpiper friends and colleagues to you. I will not take any part in negotiating a fee though.

Please see my current prices at Bagpiper Prices. My prices are flexible. I.e., if you only want me for one part at the beginning of your wedding ceremony, I won’t charge the full price that I would if I were to be playing at the end too.

Finally getting round to leaving this five-star review for Glyn, who piped for us on our wedding day in early December. I cannot recommend Glyn highly enough. He was a complete professional, answering any and all questions we had in advance of the big day, and was very happy to accommodate our requests, including piping whilst leading the procession of guests from the church at the top of the Royal Mile, down Johnstone Terrace to our reception venue – one of the standout moments of the day! Glyn was immaculately presented in full piper’s garb, and played beautifully. He really contributed to how special our day was. Thank you so much Glyn!

Glyn was fantastic at our Scottish wedding celebrations at the Ghillie Dhu. He not only played our guests in but also conducted a handfast and Quaich Ceremony for us. His speech was entertaining and he made it so personal for us. He even gifted me a lucky sixpence which was such a lovely touch. Myself and new husband Stephen can’t thank you enough you really made it a brilliant day for us.

Glyn is CLASS! He plays famously and looks fabulous. He was such a blast at our Wedding and we are so lucky we got him. Everyone felt it was the magic touch. Glyn piped several times during our Wedding day and also gave a very touching toast at our Reception. Stop looking! He is your piper! Hire him!
