Birthday Piper

Specifically for Birthday parties. Surprise the Birthday Boy or Girl with Happy Birthday on the pipes. I will then play a few sets of tunes, interact with guests, photo opportunities and the Birthday person can try their hand at getting a tune out the pipes. Covid19 restrictions and current social distancing measures may curtail some aspects of the above.

FAQs

  • How long do you play for?

    As weddings can often run late, I quote for 3 different packages, each package is focussed on a certain point in the day rather than a length of time. I factor in an additional hour in the price so there is never any issue or conflict when things are running over.

  • Do you have your own PA and lighting?

    Not required.

  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?

    Fully insured for public performance. PAT testing not relevant.

  • How much space do you require?

    Enough to stand up!

  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?

    As long as it can be played and remains recognisable on the bagpipes we're good. Some tunes just don't work we only have 9 notes..
