Please note that the Scottish Highland bagpipes are a unique instrument with a rich musical tradition. The pipes have some very specific strengths as well a number of limitations that are unusual for modern musical instruments. For example, it is impossible to play the national anthem on pipes due to the limited range of the instrument. There are other tunes that are technically possible to play (e.g., Christmas tunes) but do not sound good when played on the pipes; hearing Jingle Bells played on the bagpipes is not an experience you’ll soon forget, no matter how much you want to. Generally speaking, bagpipes play bagpipe music, and bagpipe music is varied and diverse. We are more than happy to work with you to find music to suit your needs and your event.
