About
When your event calls for that one-of-a-kind atmosphere, let talented, professional bagpiper Tim Akins provide you with the majestic sounds of the Great Highland bagpipes. Adding a Celtic touch to your event will make it unique and memorable. Tim has made his living bringing the haunting melodies of the Highlands to special occasions for many years and will custom tailor his performance to suit your specific needs.

Bagpipes add drama and elegance to your wedding ceremony and intensify the excitement of this sacred moment. Tim, dressed in full traditional Scottish regalia, will pipe for guest arrivals, ceremony prelude, processional, recessional, and postlude. And you and your guests will be thrilled to have a piper welcome them to your reception. Imagine hearing your guests cheer as the piper leads you in...this is one of the best moments of your life!

For memorials, the pipes' soulful, haunting sounds express feelings that words alone may fail to convey. Bagpipes touch the deepest emotions and ensure your loved one is fully honored as you say your final farewells. Tim's talent and professionalism will provide the dignity and honor your loved one deserves.

Tim Akins and his bagpiping was absolutely amazing. I was getting ready when I heard the pipes begin, and it was absolutely wonderful. Beauty, sentiment, history, music, all in one. He made the event perfect!

Tim was there on time. The wedding planner didn’t explain that we wanted to lead the guests out first and he led the bride and groom out. We wanted him to play a song with the band but he wasn’t told that either. Not his fault but I wish he played longer

Tim Akins’s Response:

Janice, I enjoyed piping for the party and wanted to thank you for the $25 tip. It wasn’t necessary but greatly appreciated. I’m sorry for any miscommunication. Just to clarify, I did arrive 45 minutes prior to the end of the reception. Without rehearsal, or tuning to the band, prior to the reception 3 hours earlier, it would have been impossible for the band to join me on the song I played as a solo before I piped for the mass exit. I did play until the very last shuttle left and offered to drive to the after party and pipe there too. Planner checked with father of the bride and I was told I was finished. I will return the tip if you like. Thanks,Tim

Tim Akins arrived early and stayed pass the conclusion of our event. We found Tim to be extremaly talented, cooperative and eager to please. Tim's performance was a major part of our event and enjoyed by everyone who attended and graded as awesome. He added a very special atmosphere. I would definitely recommend Tim Akins to anyone seeking a professionnal. I actually could have hired someone closer to Hilton Head Island but I am so pleased I hired Tim. If I have another occasion to hire an artist it will be Tim Akins. Thank you Tim, for helping make our event even more special. We enjoyed our time with you. Linda Thompson Hilton Head Island, SC
