PIPER FOR ANY OCCASION - DIFFERENT OUTFITS AVAILABLE
Are you looking for a wedding piper, a funeral piper or just a piper for hire for any other occasion? If so I am available to perform at Weddings, Funerals, Bar Mitzvahs, Ship Launches, Ceilidhs etc.
The areas I mainly operate as a piper for hire are Kilmacolm, Lochwinnoch, Bridge of Weir, Port Glasgow, Greenock, Kilbarchan, Brookfield, Houston, Erskine, Inchinnan, Paisley, Glasgow, and West of Scotland, although I can travel all over.
I have been the piper at many weddings and the format varies but generally the piper will do the following :
- Play the Bride and Groom out of the Church or Registry Office.
- Play the Bride and Groom in to the reception venue
- Play the guests in to the reception venue [perhaps from coaches and cars]
- Play the Bride and Groom to the Top Table
- The Bride and/or Groom may request their favourite tunes for each part. Popular choices are "Marie's Wedding", "Highland Cathedral", "Scotland the Brave", "The Barren Rocks of Aden", etc
Again, I have played at many funerals and the format can vary but can be as follows
- At a crematorium, to play the coffin into the crematorium, gradually fading away as it reaches it's destination
- At a cemetery, to play as the coffin is carried from the hearse to the graveside. Also sometimes to lead the procession to the graveside
- Absolute discretion is applied and the tunes may be selected by the family of the deceased. Popular choices are "Amazing Grace", "Highland Cathedral", "Abide with Me", "By Cool Shiloam's Shady Rill"
My local areas are : Kilmacolm, Lochwinnoch, Bridge of Weir, Port Glasgow, Greenock, Kilbarchan, Brookfield, Houston, Erskine, Inchinnan, Paisley, Glasgow, and West of Scotland, although I can travel all over.
