A Devon based ceremonial piper, playing throughout Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset.


Paul has over 30 years experience of playing the Highland Bagpipes professionally. His extensive repertoire allows him to play music for any occasion.


Make your wedding day extra special with your piper greeting the guests, piping you into the wedding venue and down the aisle, during photos or into your wedding breakfast


For birthdays, Anniversaries or just a celebration. Make your special day unforgettable with a visit from your Highland bagpiper, or, book me as a surprise piper for a relative or friend.


The haunting melancholy of the pipes lend a dignity to the solemn occasion which cannot be captured in any other way.

Burns Nights

I can help you organise this traditional event, greeting the guests and piping in the Haggis.  I can also recite the ‘Address to the Haggis’ and the Selkirk Grace.

Paul will help you with tune selection, positioning and timing, if needed, to help the occasion along. He will wear No: 1 Dress, or, No: 2 Dress ( below ), whichever is appropriate - you may decide.


Although based in South Devon, Paul regularly plays throughout the South West, including Exeter and beyond. Travel is not a problem or an expensive extra and his rates are reasonable.  He is usually available at short notice. He understands about time slippage and is always flexible.

Dear Paul...

…after a truly memorable wedding celebration for Jessica and Rick.

I just wanted you to know how much we appreciated every level of your professionalism… your sense of timing, ability to guide a clueless group of Americans on an enchanting walk to and from the chapel that no one will ever forget, your perfect choice of tunes, and your impeccable style! “Thank you” can never cover the scope of our gratitude for all you did to contribute to the magic of the day.

I thought you might enjoy thus beautiful photo. Please feel free to give our contact information for a referral any time.

Best always, Jina and Chris

I like Haggis, It is a simple and very tasty meal, which is just as well as I am getting plenty of it this week with a string of Burns Night events on. My Ceilidh band 'Piping Hot' has 3 dances and I am piping in and Addressing the Haggis ( and then eating it ) at these events and also at other bookings, every night for the next few days!! Here is a picture of a meal of Haggis, Neeps and Tatties - in case I forget what it looks like🤣 ...

Paul also plays the Highland and Border bagpipes, melodeon, flute, whistle and bodhran with the upbeat barn dance and Ceilidh band Piping Hot. Playing lively Scottish, Celtic and Irish jigs and reels or rhythmic English dance tunes in either traditional or contemporary style – what a way to end the day’s celebrations!!
