Callum Russell Bagpiper for Hire
Having played at many events across the world, I am a profesional and friendly bagpiper who is able to travel far across Scotland for your event.
I have competed with a band who won the Scottish, British and European Championships. Last year my band won the World Pipe Band Championships whilst I was pipe-sergeant. I am an enthusiastic person who would love to make your day better. Furthermore, I also teach the Chanter and Bagpipes to both beginners and Intermediate players. I currently study Commercial Music at University of the West of Scotland and I am in my third year of the course. I am also aiming to sit my Grade 7 Piano and Grade 6 Theory through the ABRSM by the end of 2018.

Without a doubt I 100% recommend Callum for your wedding! He was quick to respond from the very beginning and throughout. We celebrated our wedding at The House for and Art Lover on the 30th June. Due to circumstances beyond our control the ceremony was over an hour late. Callum was extremely understanding, offering us the greatest of flexibility. He added a magical touch to our day. Thank you Callum!

We had Callum for a small outdoor wedding. His communication in advance of the event was excellent. He is a skilled piper, showed up on time and ready, and was very accommodating to our impromptu organization and changes. He was ready to do what we requested and when things didn't go exactly as planned he adapted in the moment to make things work. On top of all of that, because of how events unfolded I ended up with about half an hour to hang out with him while waiting and found him to be pleasant company. For these reasons, I highly recommend him and I can not identify a single reason why someone would not be happy having chosen him for their event!

“Callum played the bagpipes for us at my dads 90th birthday celebrations at Highgrove House. Callum was reliable, very well mannered and very smartly turned out. He spoke with us prior to the event asking us what the event was for, how long we wished him there for and if there was anything in particular we wished played as well as taking the time to speak with my dad when he finished. We were highly impressed with his skill of the pipes , which was high praise from a previous piper. I would have no hesitation in recommending Callum and would certainly ask him for future family events.”
