Professional Full Time Bagpipers.
Guaranteed Quality and Reliability.
MyBagpiper provides the Highest Quality Bagpiping services for Weddings, Funerals, and any other Special Events at sensible and reasonable prices.
I have over 45 years bagpiping experience playing at the highest level with bands including Lothian and Borders Police Pipe Band And Shotts and Dykehead Caledonia Pipe Band and played at hundreds of weddings and events too numerous to mention.
I have also travelled extensively taking part in many high profile events including -
Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo in Edinburgh and Australia, The Pope's Christmas concert in the Vatican, Moulin Rouge in Paris, numerous tattoos in Germany, France, Denmark, Spain, USA, Canada, Australia and Scottish/Music festivals in Russia, Italy, Indonesia, Sardinia, Czech Republic and Belgium.
Mybagpiper is the resident and recommended pipers for many hotels and Venues including – MacDonald Marine Hotel, Broxmouth Park, Cashel Travel and The Edinburgh Scottish Evening.
Myself and three of my colleagues also perform as part of a Scottish Show on board some of the cruise ships.
I regularly play for the Royal Company of Archers and during these performances have performed for Royalty including HM Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and Princess Anne.
I am currently a member of the Piper's Trail Pipe Band which is performing at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo this year.
MyBagpiper can provide any number of Pipers, Drummers and Highland Dancers for your event. The Pipers have Police or a Military background and all performers are totally reliable, dressed immaculately and perform to the highest standard. Pipers can play for dancers or with other musicians such as organists and ceilidh bands. The Burns Supper piper can also address the haggis.
MyBagpiper offers a choice of uniform, full Highland regalia with feather bonnet which is normally suited for weddings and events where the piper has a big impact. The more subtle kilt, jacket and tie uniform is best for funerals and burns suppers. However the decision is completely your choice.
Although based in the Lothians, MyBagpiper is available throughout Scotland, UK and Worldwide.

I wanted to say thank you so much for being a part of the Taste of Scotland 2019! Being the first January Welcome event I have organised- I can honestly say it was so much fun to see it all finally come together and it has been fantastic working with you! The energy you bought to the event was brilliant! Especially playing at various points in different parts of Teviot, including the underground which Fergus and Inga said was fantastic!
The final attendance figure is an estimate, but at one stage within the evening, the capacity of the venue was over 730.
Thank you again for being part of this fantastic event and I shall be in touch with you for the next January welcome in September/October time.
