With my 40+ years of performing experience, my professional musicianship will provide you with top-quality music for your special event. Whether it be a funeral, wedding, birthday party, graduation, corporate event, or golf tournament, my bagpiping will be a memorable experience for you and your guests. Serving the greater San Francisco Bay Area, I offer Irish and Scottish, patriotic, and hymnal music for your selection and perform in full highland dress with Campbell tartan.
I’ve performed at over 350 weddings and 700 funerals. Some of my past performances include playing with six-time Grammy-winners The Chieftains, leading the Oscar award for “Brave” into the Pixar studio headquarters, performing for the cast and crew of “Star Trek Into Darkness”, playing for the Mayor of San Francisco, and being part of a group that played for the Queen of England on her visit to San Francisco. In addition, I have been featured on Live 105 radio station, a TV commercial for Tennent's Scottish beer, Channel 11 KNTV morning news, and the Raiders playoff half time show.
I studied under World Champion Pipe Major Donald Shaw Ramsay, B.E.M. I have played in numerous pipe bands, including The San Francisco Irish, Alameda County Sheriffs, Dunvegan, The Seattle Clansmen and The Diablo Highlanders.
If interested, I can supplement my performance with drummers, Scottish Highland dancers, and Irish step dancers for added entertainment value. I’ll be happy to discuss your needs and make arrangements.
