About
I have played the bagpipes for more than 30 years. Played for over 2000 events in the last 10 years in Virginia, Maryland, DC and Alaska. I play the traditional Highland Pipes,(great for outdoors) as well as softer Session and Small Pipes (great for indoors). I had the honor of playing for the funeral service for Tim Russert from my home in Buffalo, and the Northern Virginia memorial for Princess Dianna. I perform frequently in Arlington National Cemetery. Performed on the DC Mall with Il Divo.
For the last 28 years I have been a member of the Washington Scottish Pipe Band, pipers to the Washington DC St. Andrews Society and Clan Gregor USA.
I have enjoyed playing for great variety of gigs including weddings, funerals, anniversaries, church services, community celebrations, corporate and professional society events, private parties, military events, school programs and graduations. It has been a treat to play in a wide variety of settings; from the National Cathedral, individual homes, on the beach in Homer, AK, to inside Luray Caverns.

I would enjoy using this experience to create a unique performance for your special event.
Available for piping during the week and on week ends.

Piper Weaver was professional and approachable. We hosted a small Burn's Night Supper, and he made our event very memorable. Throughout the process, Piper Weaver maintained open communication and followed through on every aspect we discussed. He was very accomodating - bringing two styles of pipes to best fit our place (in terms of amplification). As he has piped at many large events, I was honored that he would pipe at our relatively humble supper and made us all feel as though our event was just as important and special as a more formal affair. Thank you, sir! ~Tami

Norm could not have been better for our special evening. His playing helped to create a magical atmosphere for the party that everyone commented on and enjoyed. His passion and joy for the bag pipes and music came through every song he played. He was a pleasure to work with and entertaining to talk to. I would highly recommend Norm for any occassion.

Norm was an added blessing to our father's service. Not only was his piping beautiful to hear but his reverence and "picture" patience with the family was so appreciated. We can't thank him enough.
