Dave was wonderful! He was professional in all written correspondence as well as over the phone and in person. In addition, he was very helpful, accommodating, and easygoing. We hired Dave to play for our wedding ceremony and it made our special day even more so! His experience in playing the Great Highland Bagpipes and the smallpipes allowed us more options for repertoire. If you are looking for a special Scottish touch to add to your special event, Dave is your guy!
The Uilleann pipes are not nearly so loud as their better known cousin, the Great Highland Bagpipe, are played in a seated position, and are suitable for indoor, or intimate outdoor performance.
For larger venues, or outdoor events the Great Highland Bagpipes will create a mood that is at once stately and memorable.
Music on the Irish pipes is performed in attire appropriate for the occasion. The Great Highlands Bagpipes are normally played while attired in traditional Scottish Kit, Jacket, Hose, and Shoes. Due to the length of the kilt (top of the knees when standing), I do not perform on the Irish pipes while wearing the kilt...
I have performed for festivals, weddings, orchestral concerts, and recording sessions in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, and Florida for the past twelve years as a soloist and as part of an ensemble.
I would very much like to play for your special event.
