Scottish Bagpiper for hire

I've been piping for more than a decade and in that time have played at hundreds of different events, from weddings and corporate dinners, to funerals and memorial services, venue openings and parties. I've learned a lot in that time and can now commit to you that I will provide a reliable and professional service, at a fair price, tailored to your needs.


I can also match the level of tradition and formality you're looking for- be it grand or somber, upbeat or downright eccentric- it's your day, and you're the boss. Remember, “he who pays the piper, calls the tune.” In my work, I mean that literally! Take a wee a look at my website and feel free to get in touch if there's anything you'd like to know.


To book me for your event, or just to find out more, email me at or call me on 07783 872 509

Whether you'd simply like some music to keep your guests entertained, wish to be played down the aisle, or indeed want a bagpiper to hand for the whole day, it is your special day and it's my job to help in any way I can. If you have specific requests, I can meet them. If you're unsure, I can advise what works best from the many weddings I've attended as the piper.

Funerals & Memorial Services

These are never easy days for anyone involved, but a suitable lament on the bagpipes can add hugeley to the atmosphere of the occasion. I consider it a great honour to be a part of a person's last requests, and there are a range of beautiful tunes I can recommend. Some of them can be more moving and uplifting than people expect, and it's a privelege to help make such a day more special.

Other Events

By no means are the bagpipes only suitable for weddings and funerals. I've added to the festivities at many traditional Burns Suppers and Hogmanay celebrations, dinners and balls, but I've also played special requests- often as a surprise- at birthday parties, proms, hen and stag nights- you name it! If you want something really unique and surprising, we can work together to come up with something really memorable.


Hi David, just wanted to drop you a wee email to thank you ever so much for playing at our wedding. You were amazing and you really made the day so very special. The sound of the pipes definitely added to the emotions of the day and gave a wonderful traditional Scottish feel.

Best Wishes, Claire & Mikey

Dear David On behalf of the Scottish Board of Remembering Srebrenica sincere thanks for your contribution to the service in St. Giles on Friday. Your beautiful playing of the lament made the act of remembrance so very meaningful and poignant –and so many people commentated on it! The First Minister as you know was most impressed!. It has been an extremely busy few months with so much to organise but to see the gratitude on the faces of our friends from Srebrenica made it all worthwhile. Best wishes in all you do in the future. Regards Lorna
