About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Stephen Wilkinson is one of the top Bagpipers in Southern California from 2014 to 2022! A Gigmasters Top Performer award for 8 years straight. :). He's also one of the most highly rated bagpipers on The Bash - over 110 Reviews and a 5.0 Stars Average on this site alone. He doesn't disappoint! Bagpiper Stephen has for 25 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. Check him out and listen to his music- no extra tracks or backing, just Stephen playing his wonderful bagpipe. Some other bagpipers don't offer their music- for good reason! Still others use recordings of other bagpipers! Unbelievable. Be assured on Stephen's page you only hear Stephen playing the pipes with no added effects. 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. 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! When hiring a bagpiper, reputation is very important. Stephen's stellar reviews speak to his professionalism. Many pipers rely on reviews from years ago- Stephen's most recent are right on top- nothing to hide here :) What you hear is what you get- don't be fooled - some pipers here use other peoples recordings or don't put up any recordings at all! Get the real thing - it sounds better :) Stephen is 100% reliable- he's recently received panicked calls from clients who have booked another high ranking piper who then stopped communicating or dumped them for a higher paying client. If you book Stephen he stands by that commitment every time. Stephen is prompt, courteous, friendly and reliable. Check out his website for reviews, photos, sound samples.

Review by Bruce P.

FuneralReviewed on February 4, 2023From Claremont, CA

Stephen came early and prepared. He provided the closing processional for our memorial service. He performed very well and we were most pleased.

Review by Paul M.

Restaurant EventReviewed on January 25, 2023From Burbank, CA

Stephen was fantastic! For this particular event, there was a pretty short turn around window and a few moving pieces, so it was incredibly helpful that Stephen just rolled with everything and was a delight to work with. I will definitely be using him again in the future when the opportunity arises.

Stephen Wilkinson Genuine Bagpiper:

Paul was great to work with and all the staff and crowd at the event were super appreciative. Thanks so much for including me!
