Bagpiper for all occasions. I have played many events including weddings and funerals. I have been asked to join a band that is playing in Glasgow, Scotland at the World Pipe Band Championship 2011. I will be in Scotland competing against the best pipers in the world. I am also a former member of The North Texas Caledonian Pipes and Drums and have played at venues such as the State Fair of Texas and the North Texas Irish Festival - just to name a few. Time constraints required me to turn in my NTCPD gear and leave but I enjoyed my years with them. I am also a solo competition medalist competing all over Texas and in neighboring states such as Louisiana and Arkansas.
If you're not sure what music you would like played at your event, don't worry. I have lots of experience with what most people request for certain events and I will work with you to custom plan to your musical tastes. I have a standard rate that I charge for local jobs, and will charge non-local jobs according to the location. I am very time oriented, and assure you I will be there when you need me.
I play four instruments at the moment. I am learning the Uilliann pipes. You can hire me for one or any of the pipes listed below. Listen to my music samples for examples of the different pipe sounds.
Great Highland Bagpipes - Native to Scotland these are the pipes most people think of when bagpipes are mentioned. They are best for playing at weddings, funerals or any event that needs a bold, rich pipe sound.
Gibson® Fireside Pipes - These pipes create a mellow, quieter sound which is great for indoor use. Consider these pipes for small gatherings when the Great Highlands are a little too loud.
Small Pipes - The perfect alternative to the Highland Bagpipe. They are an indoor instrument with a pleasing tone. Again, great for small gatherings or even on stage.
Irish Whistle - This is a fun little instrument. Perfect for Irish tunes.
I would love to pipe your next event!
Sincerely, Jared Malone
