Professional Bagpiping for Any Occasion

“The Splendid Bagpiper” - The Morning Call

Currently, I am the proud Pipe Major and Director of the City of Bethlehem Bagpipe Band of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Our band has about 18 bagpipers, 1 bass drummer, 4 snare drummers, and 3 tenor drummers and we perform at various events throughout the Lehigh Valley and beyond.

I am a resident of the great city of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania where I have been playing the Great Highland Bagpipe for about 40 years (20 years as a professional musician performing for over 1500 weddings, 3000 funerals, and hundreds of memorial services, civic events, educational lectures, seminars, and radio programs) and am known by the Morning Call Newspaper as “The Splendid Bagpiper”.

In addition to my performance career, I also give private bagpipe lessons to those that are interested in learning how to play the Great Highland Bagpipes. If you are interested in learning how to play the great highland bagpipe or becoming a member of the City of Bethlehem Bagpipe Band, and are located within or near the Lehigh Valley area, please contact me.

My education includes a degree in Hospitality Management and I have extensive experience with banquets and catering. I bring all the skills together of Business Management, Musicality, and Acting to produce a Bagpipe program to suit every need.

All arrangements include:

Expert service planning for your customized event Full Highland Dress

Arrival 30 minutes prior to performance

30 minutes post performance time for questions or photo opportunities

Professional conduct at all times
