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.

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 has piped for us at three of our annual balls for Ladies Circle. He is always professional and has a large repertoire of music to choose from. His piping is of the highest standard and he is a pleasure to deal with. I have no problem recommending him to anyone.”

“My wife and I hired Callum to pipe at our wedding. We could not have asked for a nicer more accommodating person who went out of his way to help make our day so special. I could not have wished for a better piper and would recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much, Mr & Mrs Henderson.”

- How long do you play for?I play for however long my clients request, i.e. For Guests arriving, up and down the aisle, and then for the reception at night.
- My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?Yes, if you send me the name of the tune/song for at least a week in advance to the event, I will be able to play it at your event.
