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.

Weddings

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.

Parties

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.

Funerals

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 leads the bridal procession to the ceremony, playing ‘Highland Cathedral’

Based in South Devon, Paul regularly plays throughout Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset.  Travel is not a problem or an expensive extra and his rates are reasonable.  He is usually available at short notices.  He understands about time slippage and is flexible.

Feedback

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 (above), whichever is appropriate – you may decide.

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.

Best always, Jina and Chris
