About
I can perform as a solo bagpiper for any event of any kind, conveying any emotion. Slow, threnodial aires. Marches, retreats. Upbeat dance music: jigs, strathspeys, reels, and hornpipes. Christmas music. Even some pop music. I have a repertoire of ~60 different traditional tunes all memorized.

I can dress in traditional formal Scottish attire, or in authentic Medieval/Elven/Ranger style garb for a more ancient or fantasy feel.

I have many years of experience, having been playing professionally since 2008, and have also won many awards as a competitive solo bagpiper. I can play both the Scottish Great Highland Bagpipe and the Irish Uilleann Bagpipe, as well as the ocarina and various Celtic flutes/whistles. Drummer for percussive accompaniment possibly available upon request.

Notable works include recording my bagpipes for the original How to Train Your Dragon movie soundtrack, as well as working with vocalists from the internationally acclaimed group Celtic Woman, recording my bagpipes for the Evermore soundtrack.

Thank you.

Eric was a joy to work with and wonderful musician. The event occured on a recent hot August Los Angeles afternoon celebrating a friend's 28th bitrthday. She is of Scottish ancestry. Her mother was in attendence and was dancing a little jig to Eric's music. We discussed his fee, the time of the party, the time for his performance. and the playlist. Everything we discussed and agreed upon went seamlessly. It was a small party of 10 and we all enthused and exhilerated by his performace. He stayed to answer questions. If you hire him, ask him to play his cufflinks (miniature insrtruments)!He and BASH get my 5 stars for their customer service and ease of working with.

Eric was a total professional, and his talent shines. He responded quickly to my inquiries, was on time and prepared for the event (a graveside funeral), and conducted himself the whole time with respect, dignity and professionalism He played the pieces we requested, and played them so beautifully. His music made the service deeply moving. I am SO glad we found Eric. Thank you, Eric.
