“How little is required for pleasure! The sound of a bagpipe – without music, life would be an error.”
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
The bagpipes and the player are a unique sight and sound for your event. Dressed in traditional Scottish garb, the bagpipe player stands steady; the instrument has a powerful volume.
While often associated with Celtic culture and tradition, the bagpipes are a woodwind instrument found throughout Northern Africa, Europe, and many Middle Eastern countries, such as Turkey. And for years, the bagpipes have been featured and preferred in all manners of the procession, from religious ceremonies and weddings to funerals and marches.
Why? The bagpipes command attention. They are heard from far away, and it only takes one musician to sound like an orchestra. Therefore, it’s a cost-effective option for events. Imagine walking down the aisle to the ethereal and Celtic sounds of the bagpipes. It’s truly an unforgettable experience.
Packed with a playlist knowledge of many traditional Scottish tunes, our bagpipe player is available for your wedding ceremony. We suggest also hiring a string trio or our jazz band for the reception or cocktail hour.
