About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

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.

Memorial ServiceReviewed on September 24, 2022From Woodbury, CT

Ian is very talented, and utterly professional piper. Feel very grateful that we found him. Made our event beautiful and poignant. I hope that we will meet again for a lighter occasion! Thank you again, Ian.

CelebrationReviewed on July 4, 2022From Germantown, NY

Ian was a great addition to my event. He's a very talented bagpiper. Inbetween sets we talked about some of the Scottish related history of the historic site and he changed his second set to include more tunes that were outlawed by the British after the Battle of Culoden. Overall he was a pleasure to have at the site, easy to work with and, as I said before, a very talented bagpiper.

FuneralReviewed on May 27, 2022From Storrs, CT

Ian is a great musician who arrived early and started playing as people arrived for the memorial. He stood a respectful distance from the grave, but close enough that his music provided wonderful background music. His song choices were appropriate and appreciated, just what my mother wanted. We couldn’t have been more pleased and are truly grateful for what this bagpiper added to the occasion.
