About
Steven MacDonald is one of the few bagpipers from Scotland living in the United States. He began learning the bagpipes at the age of 8 in Dundee, Scotland where he played with several bands including the Dundee High School Pipe Band and the Mackenzie Caledonian Pipe Band. He moved to the United States at the age of 13 and has since been competing all over the United States, Canada, and Scotland. Steven has moved up the solo competition ranks going from Grade 5, dominating contests all the way until his current status of being a Grade 1 piper. He has also competed with several bands over the years and is currently playing with a band on the West Coast of Florida, "The City of Dunedin Pipe Band." They are a world renowned pipe band that recently won the North American Bagpipe Championships. Steven is currently studying bagpipes at Carnegie Mellon University receiving world class tuition. Whether it be a wedding, funeral, birthday party, business function, golf tournament, Mr. MacDonald will bring an element of surprise to your guests or even a tear to their eye. He is sure to make your day extra special and one not to be forgotten. Steven has a range of different coloured kilts and Scottish regalia that he can wear to your event. Also, there will be no shortage of tunes for your event as Steven has a repertoire of over 3000 tunes, so there will surely be music that fits your needs. Steven is also more than willing to work with last minute requests.

I booked Steven through Gigmasters and he never responded to any messages after the booking. I emailed, called and texted about our wedding ceremony. I ended up hiring another bagpiper on my own.

Steven was fantastic in fulfilling a very last-minute request for a special birthday party for my father. His highland dress was impeccable, and he is a very, very talented piper with a wide repertoire (we weren't expecting "Happy Birthday", but he played a great rendition!). We were very glad to have worked with him!

Steven showed up to the funeral in full kit and on time. It was a particularly difficult day seeing my best friend off and it was a great relief to see and hear my friend's wishes come to crystalization. I would recommend Steven for any occasion and look forward to hiring him for an event that is not quite so solemn.
