Description

Price from: £50.00
its dependant on how much travel is involved and how long I’m needed for, for example if your wedding or event is like the far end of Skye then travel expenses come in to play, but I do try and be as fair as I can , I can only pipe at one wedding a day as 95% of ceremonies start at 14.00 hours so normally I dedicate my services to one couple per day so my fee will cover from as guests arrive right through to top table duties including my pipers toast in Gaelic then in English 👍😃🎶

Award winning wedding bagpiper in full dress Famous for playing Like a Virgin on the bagpipes to Bride to be Madonna when she arrived in the highlands for her wedding 😃 full dress includes feather bonnet as in my pictures, I try my best to play your requested tune and give it 100%, I also play at a lot of events and funerals, again I try play what the family wish for , its a huge honour for me to pipe at a loved ones funeral

Spud kindly attended a conference held in Edinburgh for our Swedish based company and not only entertained us with his wonderful piping skills but he took the time to talk to us about himself and the history of the bagpipes in detail.

Spud is first class and has performed for a number of our overseas golfing groups while they have been in Scotland. He is great with our clients and adapts to each group perfectly! Without doubt a 5***** performer!

"I had the utter pleasure of filming the wonderful Spud for a BBC documentary that followed people's lives in the Highlands in 2013/2014. I filmed Spud performing on his bagpipes across the Cairngorms over a period of seven months. I documented him playing at a wide variety of events from weddings, new years eve, piping in the haggis on Burns night and the Opening of Spay River.

Spud plays beautifully, looks incredibly impressive in his Highland dress and is an absolute pleasure to be around....

"This lovely gentleman is highly recommended!

He was really lovely on the day, the piping was excellent, and he was kind enough to have some photos taken with us at another venue afterwards.

10/10 Spud! "
