Having played the bagpipes for some thirty years, and with a wealth of experience gained from my time as a piper with the 1st Battalion The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment), I offer a unique service that will make your special occasion truly memorable. I'm proud to say that I have had the pleasure of playing the bagpipes for most of the current Royal Family and I've also been a guest at the White House where I played for George Bush senior.
Whatever the event, be it a wedding, funeral, party, Burn's night celebration or gala dinner the bagpipes always add a touch of style and prestige; leaving your guests with lasting memories. With every detail tailor-made to your own requirements you can be assured of a professional and personal service. I can play traditional Scots and Irish music, favourite melodies or even requests.
Very competitive Rates. I aim to beat any quote you have been given. Just drop me a line or send me an email from the link below, save yourself some money and although I am based in Cambridge I'd be happy to travel anywhere to your event.

Roy was absolutely amazing! From the start he was easy to get in contact with, and dropped us a message a few weeks before the wedding to go over things. On the day, he turned up on time, looked impeccably presented and was brilliant with our 5 year old son who was truly fascinated by him. As a Scottish family, we felt he was a great addition to our day and all of our guests loved him. He made my walk down the aisle even more special than I could have imagined and I would recommend him to everyone! Thanks Roy, you’re great!

Very impressed. Booked to play after my wedding ceremony. Professional and friendly, and was happy to cooperate with my specific arrangements and wedding photos (the booking was a surprise for the bride and guests). Absolutely fantastic - and highly recommended!

How long do you play for?
It depends, normally I can play for 30 minutes before I need a rest. The pipes are a very physical instrument
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
How much space do you require?
Can I say enough space to swing a cat? lol
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
Possibly with enough time to learn and to master
All traditional Scottish and Irish
