Few musical instruments stir the emotions more than the Scottish Highland pipes. From atmospheric slow airs and laments to rousing quick marches and foot tapping reels, jigs and strathspeys.
I have a very wide repertoire of tunes for the pipes and can advise you on well known favourites to tunes with a special significance for your occasion and for particular times during your event. I will also endeavour to play special requests if suitable for the pipes. Based on experience, I will normally play selections of tunes of my own choosing to suit the situation and mood and will also position myself accordingly. I have to admit to having brought a tear of joy and emotion to many an eye and to have set people dancing the next.
The times when I play are quite flexible and can be as you would like. I am used to adapting to the situation at short notice. Much of my time is taken in getting ready, travelling to and from the venues etc so once I am there the times I play and the length of time I am there is fairly flexible, dependant on other commitments. I can arrange to meet with you, if not too far away, to chat about tunes and play through selections or let you know where I will be playing.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me to chat about any details.
