I’m based in  Sheffield and earn my living from playing and teaching the bagpipes.  I generally have to travel to make this work and at the same time keep my traveling expenses down. The areas I cover include Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Cheshire, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Staffordshire, East Riding, Humberside, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and the West Midlands.  If you are looking to hire a piper for any of these areas please don’t hesitate to contact me for a quote. I’m not the cheapest of pipers around but I’m good at what I do (see my testimonials) and I believe my prices are still very reasonable. There’s a lot of bad players around posing as professionals that charge very little but bagpipes played badly can ruin any event.

I also run a piping agency called Scottish Pipers For Hire and I have a network of excellent bagpipers based all over the UK. If I can’t be available I can always help find another piper. The website can be found at www.scottishpipersforhire.com .
