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 22 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 is also a full time professional PIANIST/VOCALIST with 35 years experience. His skill behind the keyboard coupled with his smooth vocals are an excellent compliment to any function! He has played both piano and bagpipes for many 4 and 5 star resorts in the southeastern US. Please make sure to watch all of his videos to hear and see all that Tim can provide for your next event!

Tim is absolutely amazing & talented. He played bag pipes for our wedding and everyone raved over it. He is super easy going & has a ton of experience so he is very comfortable being thrown into the mix. I highly recommend him for music and can’t wait to see all the photos where he is in traditional bag piper clothing. This was a true magic touch to the wedding & he is so great!

Tim was amazing! He played the bagpipes, marched in a short parade and came dressed in full Scottish wear. Then, he played and sang for us for the rest of the event. I highly recommend him for any event!

Tim Akins’s Response:

Thanks so much Jan! It was an absolute pleasure playing for your birthday bash! Please keep me in mind for other events either virtually or the next time you’re in this area. I enjoyed being an honorary member of clan Robertson for the night. Cheers, Tim
