About
John Goff, a Portland, OR bagpiper, is a second-generation bagpiper and has performed at hundreds of weddings, funerals, celebrations and parties. As a competitive bagpiper since 1984, John has won numerous prizes in bagpipe band and solo competitions. He is one of the most prolific pipers in the Northwest having played 82 times last year at events in the area – from Vancouver, BC to California's Bay Area. John brings his passion for piping, traditional attire, and exacting standards to every performance and event. John Goff is a Portland bagpiper for hire available at short notice.

Please feel free to call about any inquiries you might have. Bagpiping is a service to the community that shouldn't be hindered. I strongly feel whether working with end of life events to the celebration of a child that all should at least have the chance to have bagpiping at their events. John – (***)***-****

John was professional, polite and very patient. My entire family was impressed with him and his beautiful piping and his friendliness. John actually helped in the final schedule for our memorial and was kind and compassionate. His gifted piping touched everyone and made this occasion one that our family and friends will never forget. We plan to hire John again within a few weeks. Thank you and looking forward to the next event with John as our piper, Christopher Bruce

John was quick to respond to my request for my last minute request for a bagpiper to play at my husband's funeral. He was very professional when he arrived and did a fabulous job playing playing Amazing Grace. This was my husband's only request for a long as I have known him and I know that he was smiling down from heaven from the moment he heard him playing. Thank You John
