About
I play the bagpipe commonly known as the Great Highland Bagpipe or the Irish Warpipe. I generally perform alone but can perform with one or more other pipers and drummers. The most common demands for pipers are weddings, funerals, and parties for which I have an ample repertoire. I play a lot of the ceol mor, i.e., the great salutes, laments, etc. often called the "classical music of the pipes" and won the professional grade competition on 5/27/2016 at Scottish Fest U.S.A. at the Orange County Fairgrounds. I won the professional Pipe Major Angus MacDonald Western Regional Championship on 11/18/2017. I also play a lot of Irish and Scotch stepdance tunes most commonly associated with the auld Scotch culture of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. I have been an happy member of the American Federation of Musicians since August 15, 1996.

He did an excellent job and told us a bit about the history behind each song, which was very interesting. We enjoyed his music so much, Robert was kind enough to play for quite a bit longer than originally planned. I give him my highest recommendation!

Mr. Burns was delightful and very professional. His performance added a profoundly beautiful touch to the funeral and meshed wonderfully with the Marine Corps honor guard present for the ceremony. My Father-in-law was a decorated Korean war veteran, and the pipes added so much to the military flavor of the ceremony. Thanks to Mr. Burns for his very moving rendition of "Highland Cathedral". There was not a dry eye left when he was through. Thanks, Jeff Morgan
