About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Bride's choice award! A better sounding and fully Highland dressed professional bagpiper for hire. I have the exceptional talent and experience, having piped and competed for almost 38 years. I'm the only piper who offers the traditional Highland bagpipe and the softer Gibson bagpipe. This isn't my hobby like it is for most- this is my full time job! I pipe for 100's of events every year- at some of the largest venues in Michigan and Ohio. Your event is special and unique, and it's an opportunity for me to help you create the perfect atmosphere filled with memories that will last a life time. It doesn't just happen- it takes talent, years of experience and a special sensitivity and attention to detail to get it right. That's why you need an exceptional professional for your special event. I am the only piper invited to audition for "America's Got Talent" 2016! I was featured on WDIV St. Patty's Day on the morning show, in 2015. WEDDINGS - Whether you're looking for one tune, or a day filled with "Scottish or Irish flavor"; I offer a great sounding selection of Scottish and Irish tunes. Tunes such as; "Highland Cathedral", "Scotland the Brave", or the very sweet Irish song- "When Irish Eyes are Smiling". Looking for something more traditional? How about; "Here comes the Bride"? The theme from the movie Braveheart; "For the Love of a Princess", is romantic and extremely popular with brides. The STARZ hit series "Outlander" theme song is quickly becoming another favorite! Two of my most requested tunes are "Stars Wars" and the U of M fight song- perfect for a groom's entrance! For the biggest WOW! Save the piper as a surprise for the recessional! FUNERALS AND MEMORIALS –I am the preferred bagpiper at Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, MI. There is nothing that touches the heart more, than to see a bagpiper in FULL Highland Regalia, and to hear an exceptionally talented piper playing "Amazing Grace", "Going Home", "Danny Boy" or "When Irish Eyes are smiling". A piper is appropriate for any size funeral, memorial or military service; at the church, funeral home, cemetery, hall or home. For Military events; Taps, Army song and the Marine Corp. Hymn are available. The U of M fight song is my most requested song! SCOTTISH PARTIES, CELTIC OR IRISH THEMED EVENTS – My unique piping show and performance is very entertaining- always a hit! Perfect for parties, schools, libraries, senior centers and assisted living facilities. This 20-60 minute (content and time can be adjusted to meet your needs) interactive program includes; a nice selection of tunes piped on a variety of bagpipes, interesting fun facts and folklore about bagpipes and my incredible piping attire, and a wee bit of Scottish history. Appropriate for any size group, and all ages. Very popular at schools and libraries! I can also include teaching a couple simple highland dance steps, with audience participation. This is not a concert. Please note: This program is not appropriate for special needs groups, long term care rehab centers or nursing homes. The bagpipes are VERY VERY Loud! Please take this into consideration when planning an event for your group. Room size is also very important! Proud member and Pipe Sargent of the new 2017 bagpipe band; "Motor City Pipes and Drums". Depending on availability; 2-3 pipers, drummers, or a small mini band can also be arranged for. Call for information. Some of my favorite piping events include; opening for the premier of the movie "Our Vietnam Generation" at the Fox, The Moving Wall visiting Hamburg MI, Relay for Life, MGM Grand Hotel and Detroit Yacht Club weddings, Dewar's Highland Honey Whiskey premier event, and an HBO reality series in W. Bloomfield. I have also piped at many public libraries and senior citizen centers including Clawson, Ferndale and Royal Oak. You'll hear me in the Detroit Metro area every St Patty's Day, piping for Hubert distributors and Guinness! I am the only piper that offers a choice of bagpipes and volumes: Check out my videos. ~The traditional Great Highland Bagpipes- perfect for any indoor or outside event. These are the loud pipes everyone is familiar with and loves; great for churches and other large indoor and outside venues. Nothing says "WOW" like these pipes! ~Gibson Small Pipes- perfect for small, indoor, more intimate settings where a softer bagpipe volume would be more appropriate; adds a nice touch of Scottish/Irish "flavor" without the overwhelming volume. A special selection of Irish and Scottish tunes are available.

Review by Heather K.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 20, 2015From New Haven, MI

Kim is a wonderful person and very talented and professional musician! We had the pleasure of meeting her in her home beforehand to hear her play and it made the experience even more personable because we already knew her when it came time for the big day. She looked and sounded perfect. We would highly recommend Kim for any occasion. She is amazing!!!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on April 30, 2016From Dearborn, MI

I couldn't be happier with the amazing job Kim did for my sisters wedding. Even when rain changed the setting of the ceremony she went above and beyond and did an incredible job. We managed to keep her performance a surprise unitl she came out and brought most of the crowd to tears just in time for the bride to walk down the isle. We can't sing her praises enough, I would highly recommend her to anyone!

The Michigan Bagpiper:

Thank you for the awesome review! I'm so glad you were happy with my services.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 22, 2014From Dearborn, MI

Kim was really wonderful! My daughter and I actually got to go to her home and hear her play before the wedding, making us both cry. At the wedding, things were so rushed, I didn't get the chance to tell Kim how special her being there was for us and to thank her! Kim's performance was flawless; she is a skilled and very professional piper. I was so pleased (and proud) that we had surprised our guests when Kim came up the stairs to stand in front of the altar to pipe my daughter up the aisle. Growing up Scottish, every time I hear the bagpipes, I get a little swell in my heart. Kim made it all the more special, and I am so grateful we hired her!
