Planning a wedding, a party,  a memorable way to announce your guests or head table? Planning a “Celebration of Life?  A bagpiper hits the perfect note.

“Just a quick note to tell you how special you made our celebration of life for William Wallace. You brought the house to tears especially playing Amazing Grace. I am forever grateful. Thank you.      Sheila Wallace, Nov. 2016

I have been playing for 25+ years, in BC, Alberta and my home province of Nova Scotia (New Scotland). Contact me to discuss your event or provide a quote.

(More background stuff….)

I am the piper for the Rocky Mountaineer Rail Company and can be found most mornings in the summer season piping for guests. I play for the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, numerous universities and colleges, couples getting married, families grieving a lost loved one, birthday parties and sometimes for people who just like to listen to the pipes.

I am the Chair of the B.C. Highland Games & Scottish Festival, a civilian piper with the RCMP E. Division Pipe Band in British Columbia, a former member of the Triumph Street Pipe Band (III), the Sir. John A. MacDonald Pipe Band and the Halifax Police Pipe Band and sometimes play with the Antigonish Highland Games Reunion Pipe Band.

“I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful piping you performed at the

Celebration of Life for my father, Howard Donald Cameron . I will be recommending you to all my friends. You made us cry…which to me is truly a wonderful send off for a extremely wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather whom always had a smile on his face and a great sense of humour.” Sincerely, Cathy Cameron
