Bagpiper

Why have Pipers? The answer is simple. The Scottish Highland Bagpipes will make your event unique.

A Bagpiper can provide a stirring beginning, a grand entrance or a spectacular finale for any event.

Due to their use in the military, the Bagpipes have also become a ceremonial instrument and have been used in weddings, funerals, and other events for hundreds of years.

WEDDINGS
Pipers are perfect for a church ceremony or a civil ceremony. Their services are varied but they usually play their inspiring music as the guests arrive. Our Pipers can then play the bride into the ceremony and during the signing of the register. They then play their rousing music once you are officially announced as husband and wife.

Our Pipers play traditional Scottish and Irish music!

We also provide an amazing act who doesn’t only just play traditional Scottish and Irish music but can play all styles of music on the bagpipes, Blues, Rock, Jazz, ancient and modern as well as African and Indian music.

ASIAN WEDDINGS
We have a selection of Bagpipers available to book for Asian events due to their ability to combine Highland pipes with Indian Dhol drumming to welcome the bride and groom and play throughout the wedding ceremony.

CORPORATE AND PRIVATE PARTY EVENTS
Pipers are adept at providing entertainment at key moments in the party:

Attendance time: 30 minutes - 1 hour

  • Pipe/surprise celebrant(s) - at the front of venue or walking up the street for example
  • Pipe a short set of up-tempo and novelty tunes – you may have a specific song request that the piper can play here
  • Pipe an exit

FUNERALS
A Piper can play as the congregation arrives at the church or crematorium and at a number of key stages in the proceedings, including:

Burials

  • While the coffin is taken from the chapel to the hearse
  • Whilst leading the coffin from the hearse to the graveside
  • At the graveside

Cremations

  • As the coffin is taken from the hearse inside the crematorium
  • During the service – pipe as the wreath is laid and/or as the curtain is drawn
  • At the end of the service as people leave the crematorium

Just wanted to send you a note to say that Rick was just such a rock star on our stand this week at Black Hat Europe.  He is just such a super chap and totally wonderful to work with.  He just rocks up and gets on with things, we had some issues with our cabling and he sorted that out and then just keeps rolling all day.  He chats away with all the ‘customers’ and is a joy to work with.  All our team at Carbon Black, just love him.
