About
I am available to play the Great Highland Bagpipes at weddings, memorial services, military functions, golf tournaments and other special events throughout the Hampton Roads region of Virginia and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I have more than 30 years of experience as a solo and band piper and nearly 20 as a paid performer.

I am a Grade 1 soloist in the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association (EUSPBA) and a member of two bands: Tidewater Pipes & Drums (Grade 4) and Greater Richmond Pipes & Drums (Grade 3). I have performed in the Virginia International Tattoo many times and was featured as the "Lone Piper" in the 2011 show.

Please contact me to discuss how I can help make your event special.

Note: If I am unable to play for you, I will be happy to refer you to a bandmate or another qualified piper.

I cannot thank Jim enough for playing the bagpipes at my wedding. Everyone enjoyed listening to him and the second I heard him playing I had tears of joy! Thanks Jim.

He did a great job leading the official party in a retirement ceremony. We are so glad we chose him. Highly recommended for military ceremonies!

Jim absolutely made the beginning of our party over the top wonderful! He played the bag pipes with the birthday revelers following him down our road. It added so much to our party and is one that not many are likely to forget. Thank you so much, Jim.

It was perfect! Jim showed up at the restaurant at the appointed time and played wonderfully for my 88 year old mother's birthday. She was enthralled. I have and will continue to recommend Jim and his pipes to all my friends and contacts.

There are no words to describe how incredible Mr. Roberts was. Even though my daddy’s service was small, Mr. Roberts treated it as if it was a kings funeral. Everyone could not stop raving on Mr. Roberts’ performance. Everyone was in complete awe of him. Thank you so much Mr. Roberts from my entire family for the incredible songs, support, and respect you showed. You were amazing! God bless!
