About
With two decades of experience in both the competitive and professional event field, I will provide complete satisfaction for any event that requires the bagpipes in the Greater Mid-Atlantic region. I've performed at numerous venues in the United States including the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, Strathmore Music Center, Folger Shakespeare Library, the National Cathedral and the steps of the U.S. Capitol. My travels have taken me abroad to Maxville, Ontario for the North American Pipe Band Championships as well as the Worlds Pipe Band Championships overseas in Glasgow, Scotland. I am currently ranked Grade 1 for Solo Competition, the second-highest ranking possible. As well, I'm a former member of the now-disbanded City of Washington Pipe Band. Aside from competition, I have provided my services at countless weddings, funerals, concerts, and media programs. I guarantee a professional performance upon request.

Duncan was PERFECT. I hired him for my father's funeral. He arrived more than 30 minutes prior to the procession and we could see he was playing in the distance well before anyone arrived at the grave site. It was an extremely cold and windy day and he was dressed as you'd expect despite the below freezing temperature. His song selections were 100% appropriate and he even accommodated a favorite song. Communication was great. I don't usually write reviews, but am compelled in his case. A very talented professional who I would recommend whole heartedly. Thank you so much Duncan. My mother really appreciated the pipes, and my father would have really loved it.

Duncan was very accommodating, respectful, & professional. Following my request submission, he contacted me right away both by email & by phone. On the day of my friend's memorial, he kept in touch to let me know when he would arrive, & he was there & ready in plenty of time to start his performance at the requested time. The weather that day was fairly cold with a breezy wind & spitting rain, but Duncan handled the elements with sincere professionalism & didn't let it affect his performance. He made sure that we were satisfied & our needs were met, & I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Duncan was a delight to work with from the moment we contracted him for our son's wedding (twp weeks before the event!) to the moving processional of "I Can Feel the Love Tonight". He welcomed the guests for about an hour and then the processional. He provided us with a list of his wedding repertoire, asked if there was anything we wanted and then eagerly accepted the challenge of the Lion King song. He worked with the planner and DJ to get the tracking back that was required. I would strongly recommend Duncan to anyone who wants an accomplished piper and little stress.

Duncan did an amazing job playing for my Father's service at Arlington National Cemetery. He was present before we arrived and played the requested music beautifully. He was a true professional and I would highly recommend him to others.

Wow! Mr Moore is the consummate professional. In spite of historic storms and flooding, he arrived at Arlington National Cemetery early for my parents' funeral on 08 July. He worked with Arlington to meet unexpected challenges and obstacles posed by the Navy Band [limited when he could play - we did not know this ahead of time]. Played beautifully; my dad would be delighted that he tackled "Anchors Aweigh" - certainly not a bagpipe-friendly tune. Family, friends, colleagues and shipmates were very impressed. Thanks very much, Mr Moore.

Duncan was wonderful. He stayed in communication with me, he got to the site on time, he looked great in his kilt. His idea of greeting the morners at the grave site really set a reverent, poignant tone to the proceedings ceremony. He did a great job on the background music after the ceremony and he stayed and added the solemnity to the time as the family looked at the other graves and chatted. Everyone in my family was SO pleased with Duncan.

Duncan provided beautiful, moving music before my father's memorial service as guests were coming into the church, and led the procession to the graveside in a solemn and moving manner. The music was very appropriately chosen and professionally played, and many guests commented on how much his music contributed to the beauty of my dad's celebration of life. We are so thankful Duncan was recommended to us and that he was available on short notice. He also was very professional and easy to work with.

Duncan Moore was prompt in communicating his interest and availability for our mother's service which helped immensely in allowing us to plan everything within one week. His follow-up back and forth with us to establish the details expected of him was timely, courteous and caring, and he accommodated all our requests for specific music (advising when a specific hymn just wouldn't work well on a bagpipe!) and had no problem processing outdoors on a hillside, while playing before and after our service. His clothing was wonderful, his playing was out of this world, and he and his bagpipes were just what our service needed. In conclusion, Duncan Moore, was perfect!!
