This is only a list of suggested events that bagpipes could be used at:
Birthday & Private Parties
Options for Your Event
There are several different options that can fit your event perfectly.
Type of Bagpipe: There are two different types of pipes I offer that are available for your event: the very loud Great Highland Bagpipes and the indoor, quiet Scottish Smallpipes. Depending on your event, you may prefer one set over another, or both.
Tunes & Requests: Another option that is very flexible for your event is the tunes that would be played. Types of tunes vary from regimental marches, moving slow airs, festive jigs and reels, and traditional tunes, such as the Bridal March and Wedding March. This is up to you and can be determined by checking out tunes on this website, checking out my channel on YouTube, or requesting a personal meeting. Special requests are available, given enough time prior to the event to write, convert, or learn the tune.
Attire: Depending on the event or color coordination of your event, there are options for attire for your event. The kilt is one of these options: the red/green/yellow color of the MacGregor Modern tartan, the green/blue color of the Farquharson Ancient tartan, or the solid forest green of the Irish tartan. Vest, jacket, tie, bowtie, hose (sock) color, and flashes color are also options that are available, but are oftentimes at the discretion of the piper.
Performance: I can play at any point before, during, or after your ceremony - it is up to you when you would like me to perform and what tune what you would like for me to play then. This can be decided upon at a prior meeting or through emails before the event.
Multiple Pipers/Drummers: Additional pipers and/or drummers are arrangable if it is requested, although the price will increase significantly. See the Southwest Skye Pipes & Drums website for more information about the Band, or Contact Me for more information.
Cost of a piper varies depending upon the event, distance, time, attire requested, special tune requests, and the length of the event. Please Contact Me for more information regarding prices for your specific event.
