The Great Highland Bagpipe is a centuries old instrument with a wonderful, unique sound that is perfect for adding a touch of class and culture to any event. Bagpipers are commonplace at weddings and funerals, but they are also great for other events such as fundraisers, memorials, and military functions. The bagpipe is still somewhat mysterious to many people, so this website is a resource for you to learn more about piping, how a bagpiper could be used at your event, and how to select a bagpiper. Please visit my other pages to explore this information as well as learn more about my piping history.

From the beaches of Florida to the valleys of Massachussetts I have performed and competed on the pipes in many venues across the East Coast. I am committed to a professional presence and above all a well maintained, well tuned, and well played bagpipe. I would be delighted to provide music at your event in Hampton Roads including: Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Newport News, and the Northern Outer Banks. Visit my facebook page, facebook.com/norfolkbagpiper, for news and event photos. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
