Professional bagpiper with over 20 years experience. I specialize in funerals, but also play for weddings and other celebrations. I've been a funeral piper for 4 years and have a large list of tunes I play. I take requests when possible. I work with the family to make sure they get exactly what they want. I have 2 types of bagpipes, one is a set of small pipes (quieter and more mellow sounding) that are approved for playing in churches, and the other is the highland war pipes most people are familiar with (you see them in parades and at the highland games). If I'm unable to play for your event, I will help you find another piper, I have connections in quite a few local pipe bands. I am also the Hamilton clan piper for Utah and Colorado.
I don't have a set price for my services because I believe if someone wants bagpipes at their funeral, they should have bagpipes regardless of their financial situation. I let the family decide what they can pay and I use that money to upkeep my uniforms, instruments, and to help me get to the next performance.
