About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

With over 45 years of experience playing the great highland bagpipe, Pipe Major Gordon Warburton plays at weddings, funerals, golf tournaments and a variety of other events across the region. Gordon is the Pipe Major of the Grandfather Mountain Highlanders, the host band of the Grandfather Games. He also is an instructor at the North American Academy of Piping in Valle Crucis (15 years). Gordon has led the band to numerous championships in North America and led the band to an 8th place finish at the world pipe band championships in Glasgow, Scotland in 2005. He played with the Chieftains at Farthing Auditorium in Boone, and the band opened for Rod Stewart several times. Gordon prides himself on his professionalism. When he plays a gig, you can count on a bagpipe that is in tune and music that is played well. He arrives on time and is prepared. He looks great in a kilt (!) and after playing gigs for such a long time, he is very flexible. His son, Andrew also plays the pipes and the organ if you need accompaniment on Highland Cathedral. His wife, Sally, is a professional bass and tenor drummer and and on the board of the Highland Games. IIf you need one piper, or two, or a mini band, or a full band, look no further. We can accommodate your musical needs.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on October 22, 2022From Mill Spring, NC

Gordon was on-time to the event, communicated clearly ahead of time, played the pipes exceptionally, was personable, friendly, and looked great in his Highland attire. I will certainly, without doubt, want to book Gordon again - he is highly recommended! Thanks for making the wedding extra special with your talent - we loved having the bagpipes bring Scotland to our event!
