The Yorkshire Bagpiper

I am a Scottish Bagpiper available for hire. I have over 25 years experience. I  have performed at countless Weddings, Parties, Funerals, Burns Suppers, New Years Eve Parties, Military dinners and other formal occasions. I have appeared on ITV’s ‘The Dales’ and ‘The Lakes’  playing at weddings featured on the programs. I am the offical News Years Eve bagpipe player for Napoleon’s Casino in Sheffield and the Thorpe Park Hotel in Leeds.  For over six years I’ve been teaching the bagpipes at the Army Foundation College in Harrogate to junior soldiers as part of the Duke Of Edinburgh scheme. Based in Stocksbridge, Sheffield I am available to hire for events in Manchester, Stockport, Leeds, Harrogate, York, Wakefield, Doncaster, Nottingham, Derby, Hull, and Lincoln, etc.

Got Ed in to attend a surprise birthday party for my mums 70th in Leeds, Had my mum at the front of the stage as I was giving a speech and the wife was outside waiting for the cue to come in with Ed playing the bagpipes, when it was time we opened the door and in he walked tunes blaring out, my mums face was priceless, she welled up and had hand over mouth, it worked she had no idea and loved it, I must say thank you Ed as this made my mums night. On the booking side of things it was really easy, fantastic communication, arrived on time etc, can not fault anything at all. Again, thanks Ed and if we ever need a piper in the future we’ll be contacting you again!”

We was very pleased with you . The music was incredible.The priest and the undertaker said that you were the best bagpiper he had heard.The music that you played after dad was buried was beautiful. What was the tune? Thanks again it was such a fitting touch to dads funeral.

Hi Ed sorry I’ve not been in touch before but I want to say a massive thank you for playing the bagpipes at our wedding. It was amazing and both myself and Lee and all our guests loved it. You made our day extra special. Thank you.
