As a professional piper of over 20 years, I bring a unique dedication to the instrument, and am committed to producing a beautiful tone and sophisticated repertoire to any event that I play. I play everything from traditional Scottish and Irish favorites to high level Grade-1 tunes and ceol mor. Over the years I have performed at all kinds of events including: weddings, parties, retirements, comedy sketches, prime time TV appearances, surprise engagements, pub crawls, school fairs, St. Patrick's Day parties and parades, and more somber events such as funerals and memorial services.
A note about traveling: I sometimes receive notes from potential clients informing me that they hired somebody else that was located closer to them. I always submit quotes that incorporate my travel time, so I would encourage anybody looking for a piper to book based on quality and experience, rather than logistical convenience. I travel far and wide to perform, and I do it full time.
A note about pricing: My minimum fee is the type of rate that I would charge for a short or surprise performance of 5-10 minutes, within a 15-20 minute drive, either fairly short notice or happens earlier in the day, and incurs no bridge/road tolls. Weddings, funerals, and many other types of events will come in at a higher rate based on time commitment, travel, and time of year, so please do not take offense when a higher quote comes in. Thank you for your consideration.
