Piper Hire

Highland Piper Service ~ Scottish & Irish Tunes.
Also tunes from the Cambridge & Districts Pipe Band repertoire
available for
Weddings and other functions.

Bryan Mitchell, a piper with over 47 years experience is the primary bagpiper, but we are supported by other capable pipers.
If more than one piper is required this can be arranged. However if the pipers are always required to play together, this may reduce the repertoire
of tunes available for playing on the day. If able to play solo at times, then it may increase the repertoire of tunes. Our Highland bagpipers can wear different styles of attire to match your event or occasion and the kilt worn can be from our hire tartan range if available.
Refer to our piping pages.

Pipers are available for Weddings, Funerals, Anniversaries, and any formal or informal occasion.
