About
Greetings and thank you for considering me for your event. I am the bagpiper for the Ulster County NY Sheriff's Office Honor Guard as well as the bagpiper and principal songwriter for the rock & roll band, Alternative Ulster. I have performed more funerals, weddings and rock shows than I can recall and am always immaculately dressed, on time, professional, courteous and reasonably priced. My repertoire consists of all the standards plus many jigs and reels to liven up your occasion. For funerals, once committed, I will not be deterred by the weather. Rest assured, I will be there for you in your time of sorrow. A comprehensive list of songs that I perform is below. Peace.

My only regret is that I have but 5 stars to give. I booked Irish Bagpiper for my wedding and he was fantastic in every respect. His playing was beautiful and deeply enriched the ceremony. For as long as I have contemplated marriage I have contemplated it with bagpipes and Irish bagpiper surpassed even the long imagined soundtrack in my head. He was a joy to work with, very accommodating of special requests, and very helpful in identifying what songs would work well and explaining why others would not work as well. As a groom on his wedding day I also really appreciated his friendly easygoing manner. I highly recommend him.

John was excellent to work with and communicated clearly. He handled doing a custom piece for my walk down the aisle. I received many compliments from my wedding guest on his music and apparel.
