About
There is nothing more inspiring than the rich tones of the traditional highland bagpipe, and no instrument more fitting for any event! For 13 years, Christian Markle has been performing professionally at weddings, funerals, collegiate graduations, social engagements, festivals, sporting events, birthday parties, parades, and holiday celebrations. As a piper, he prides himself on musical perfection, not only in professional performance but also in regional competition. Christian Markle learned his craft from world class musicians from the United States, Canada, and Scotland. He has performed in Ireland and and much of the South Eastern United States. His audiences have included Scottish societies, government dignitaries, and people from all walks of life who enjoy the sound of their heritage. Christian also enjoys performing with Celtic rock bands like Black Iron Gathering. You can be assured that hiring Christian means you will have a beautiful tuned, musically masterful musician ready to make your event a success.

Christian is also very punctual. He arrives well before an event in case he is needed. He is also flexible to work with anyone's schedule, and is ready to accommodate to changed plans to the best of his ability. He enjoys meeting new people and counts it as a highlight of every event. Christian Markle's first class bagpipe and contagious personality makes him a "must have" for any event.

Best part of the night! Christian was everything we envisioned for our wedding event. He learned new pieces willingly and was incredibly professional and talented. He had multiple solos as well as interaction with drummers from two different bands. Incredible performer!
