Fáilte! (Welcome!)

As an experienced bagpiper for hire, I bring the thrill and spectacle of Scottish Highland Bagpipes, appropriately attired in the national dress of Scotland, to events such as weddings, military dining outs, funerals and memorial services, golf tournaments and sporting events, birthday parties, school presentations and corporate events.

With over 30 years performing experience and seven generations of clan tradition I guarantee an evocative and memorable experience for you and your guests.

My services are available throughout California and Nevada (as well as  the rest of the world). I frequently perform in the ‘Loch’ Tahoe basin cities including; South Lake Tahoe, Stateline, Zephyr Cove, North Lake Tahoe, Tahoe City, Truckee, Incline Village, as well as San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento, Carmel, Monterey, Santa Cruz, Carson City, Reno and Fallon. Have pipes – will travel!

Welcome to my conversation…

is it friday? it’s friday! here’s tonight’s submission for the sunset isolation sessions. dedicated to all those celebrating a birthday on lockdown, especially my sister siobhan and wendy ledger’s mom; a very old, traditional pipe tune. (know someone celebrating? send a virtual piper to their party! videos are available on my youtube channel: piper sean cummings)
