How long do you play for?
Normally I'll give two, sometimes three performances of about 10 to 15 tunes each time. I always gauge the audience as to when is a good time to break.
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
My pipes are very mobile and don't need an amplifier. Being well tuned, they have full volume and a pleasing sound to the ear.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
I have public liability insurance for my premises. I don't need electrical equipment.
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
I have memorized over 200 tunes properly. Not normally stuck for choice.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
Between one and two breaks to allow for variety. Usually discuss schedule with events organizer.
When would the piper be arriving.
Normally arrive 30 minutes prior to start of playing.
Does the piper have more than one tartan or highland uniform ?
I have several tartans, at least seven and as many sporrans, but also have the full regimental dress with feather bonnet. Scots Guards style.
Highland Piper for important events, weddings and funerals. The piper comes in a choice of seven tartans.
