I’m a professional Scottish bagpiper for hire. Available 7 days a week. I grew up in Glasgow and started learning the pipes at 11 years old. Then moved to the north of England in my early 20s. I have 30 years continuous experience playing to a high standard with pipe bands in Scotland and England. I've performed at hundreds of events as a solo musician. Including weddings, funerals, birthday parties, and more.

"We could not have asked for a better service ever !!

Malcolm was there on time exactly as requested and wow, he was superb.

Coming in far less expensive than any other piper we looked at and a friendly knowledgable piper he was too.

Exceeded all expectations thank you, Malcolm. (we even forgive your name not being ""McSmith)"

  • How long do you play for?
    Playing time is determined by the event. As a guide: Birthday\ Anniversary party- 1 hour. Funeral- 2 hours. Wedding- 3 hours. A bagpiper will typically play for 15- 45 minutes per session, before requiring a break.
  • Do you have your own PA and lighting?
    Not required.
  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
    Not required.
  • How much space do you require?
    Only require space for 1 person.
  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
    I accept requests to learn new music. Please ask.
  • How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
    A bagpiper will typically play for 15-45 minutes each hour before requiring a break.
