A Devon based ceremonial piper, playing throughout Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset.

Paul has over 30 years experience of playing the Highland Bagpipes professionally. His extensive repertoire allows him to play music for any occasion.

Weddings

Make your wedding day extra special with your piper greeting the guests, piping you into the wedding venue and down the aisle, during photos or into your wedding breakfast.

Parties

For birthdays, Anniversaries or just a celebration. Make your special day unforgettable with a visit from your Highland bagpiper, or, book me as a surprise piper for a relative or friend.

Funerals

The haunting melancholy of the pipes lend a dignity to the solemn occasion which cannot be captured in any other way.

Burns Nights

I can help you organise this traditional event, greeting the guests and piping in the Haggis.  I can also recite the ‘Address to the Haggis’ and the Selkirk Grace.

Paul leads the bridal procession to the ceremony, playing ‘Highland Cathedral’

Dear Paul...

…after a truly memorable wedding celebration for Jessica and Rick.

I just wanted you to know how much we appreciated every level of your professionalism… your sense of timing, ability to guide a clueless group of Americans on an enchanting walk to and from the chapel that no one will ever forget, your perfect choice of tunes, and your impeccable style! “Thank you” can never cover the scope of our gratitude for all you did to contribute to the magic of the day.

Best always, Jina and Chris

There is often a lot of waiting around with Piping. There may be a couple of hours between the wedding ceremony and leading the couple in to the meal and I often find myself picking up empty drinks glasses to help out if the venue is short staffed, just to keep myself busy, or, I can take myself off to a quiet corner and try out a few new tunes.?! The photographer, here, caught me doing just that. ... See MoreSee Less

Paul also plays the Highland and Border bagpipes, melodeon, flute, whistle and bodhran with the upbeat barn dance and Ceilidh band Piping Hot. Playing lively Scottish, Celtic and Irish jigs and reels or rhythmic English dance tunes in either traditional or contemporary style – what a way to end the day’s celebrations!!
