About
Stephen Wilkinson is one of the top Bagpipers in Southern California from 2014 to 2021! A Gigmasters Top Performer award for 7 years straight. :)

Bagpipes are the original green instrument and are perfect for social distancing applications during these times. I've even participated and know how to make this work in a Zoom meeting! Adaptability and flexibility is critical these days!

Bagpiper Stephen has for over 20 years expertly played the bagpipes for weddings, funerals, celebrations of life, birthday parties, St. Patrick's Day and other special occasions. Stephen has a wide repertoire that includes all Scottish/Irish and Celtic favorites. Stephen comes to every event smartly dressed in Kilt and Jacket. Stephen has played to over 300 clients with all 5 Star reviews-his most recent reviews are always on top. Check them out and listen to his music- no extra tracks or backing, just Stephen playing his wonderful bagpipe.

As a client of Stephen's you can expect: an outstanding instrument with a beautiful sound, played expertly; an easy process- Stephen will communicate to be sure everything is crystal clear; a bagpiper who is 100% reliable with a perfect on time record; a professional at every stage of the event - pressed and looking smart; and lastly a piper who is approachable and friendly- Stephen is an ambassador of bagpiping and loves to meet new people.

Stephen only plays a true blackwood bagpipe with a sheepskin bag for the most traditional and absolute best sound. Much better than other pipers who play plastic pipes with synthetic bags that don't deliver the great tone a bagpipe should.

When hiring a bagpiper, reputation is very important. Stephen's stellar reviews speak to his professionalism. Many pipers bury poor reviews- Stephen's are listed with the most recent reviews on top. Don't be disappointed, hire a true pro.

Stephen is prompt, courteous, friendly and reliable. Check out his website for reviews, photos, sound samples. Google: Bagpiper Stephen. :)

With a different year due to Covid, we were still able to have a safe gathering for kids and adults but Stephen Wilkinson made it amazing!! He played such beautiful tunes and everyone enjoyed it - even the other vendors! It was a birthday party for my son and father (who is first generation Irish American) and they chatted on and off which made the day so special. Thank you so much! Can’t wait to do this again with Stephen!

Not only was Stephen on time and performed beautifully, he was a delight to all our guests. Very personal and was the highlight of our Celebration of Life. I would give him 6 stars but 5 is the highest allowed.
