I am a professional bagpiper with over 40 years experience. I am available for any event requiring a piper, offering an exceptionally professional and reliable service. Previously I have piped at a variety of events such as weddings, Burns' nights, Hogmanay and local business openings. Currently, I am a member of Haddington and City of Edinburgh Pipe Band and regularly take part in national competitions such as World Pipe Band Championships and the Cowell Games. I am willing to travel around Edinburgh and the Lothians and offer competitive rates. In addition to this, I am a bagpipe tutor and teach within schools for young people completing National Qualifications up to Advanced Higher in bagpiping.

Here is a review for a recent wedding I piped at:

Piped at a wedding at the Stair Arms hotel, Pathhead. Weather glorious and the couple were appreciative of the service offered.

‘ Found Alex on Gumtree advertising his services. Couldn’t have expected a nicer guy, hadn’t really pictured what he looked like but he’s the proper piper type and looked the part and played exactly what was asked. Wouldn’t hesitate in booking with him again.’

‘Alexander was a spectacular feature on our wedding day... He piped the bride in and everyone commented on how great he was. As a musician he was great but also professional and friendly and we got some lovely photos! Very affordable too thank you so much! From Aaron and Jayda’

‘Excellent piper for any special occasion, Alexander piped at our wedding, our day went great, he piped various tunes, was there in plenty of time and very good price, wouldn't hesitate to book him again. 10 /10, well done.'

‘Thanks Alastair for the lift up to Carberry and for your excellent piping, Paula and all the American visitors loved it. Thanks, Jim’

Just wanted to say thank you for yesterday- it was lovely to have you there- the American and Canadian guests at the wedding were particularly thrilled!
Thanks again,
Peter and Nicola

Another review for a funeral in November 2018:

‘ I could not have chosen a nicer person for this event. Alex was sensitive to our situation, took the time to get to know what the funeral meant to us, was always contactable when I needed to discuss things with him and an amazing piper... I would definitely use his services again but hopefully under better circumstances.’

For bookings or further information please contact me through Gumtree.

Thanks for looking,
