Birthdays, Celebrations & Corporate Events
The pipes are always a welcome addition to any special occasion or ceremony. Here are some of the events I have played at:
- Welcoming dignitaries - sometimes playing music of their own country
- Private dinner functions - sometimes with a talk about the pipes
- Birthday parties – “Happy Birthday” on the pipes is always a surprise
- New Year celebrations - “Auld Lang Syne”.
If you give me advance warning, I can also play - foreign national anthems, folk songs or some particular favourite for the occasion.
The dances “Strip the Willow” “Eightsome Reel” and “Gay Gordons” get everyone involved. If you don’t know how to do them, don’t worry - I can show complete beginners how to join in the fun.
"I must say it was our pleasure to have you perform at my Son's graduation. Everyone enjoyed your musicality and especially enjoyed You! You helped put the 'Scottish' into our event and make it a memorable moment that I know everyone will recall most fondly. Thank you once again. All my best wishes for you."

"Thank you once again for agreeing to play for us at such a short notice. Your address to haggis was superb. If I ever need a piper I will have no hesitation in contacting you again and I shall recommend you to all my friends too. My mum is sending you her love and a special thank you from the bottom of her heart."
