Specializing in Funerals, also Civic, Church, School, or Corporate Events. (Bill played for two years under the stage name of "Liam Fox." Weddings and house parties no longer available)

Add the solemn and dignified sound of the Great Highland Bagpipes to the funeral of a loved one, for the Irish or Scottish touch you want.

Add the pomp and circumstance, or the joy and fun, of the pipes to your Civic, Church, School, or corportae event.

A full-time professional piper, Bill plays Irish, Scottish, and Welsh tunes on the great highland bagpipes. He gives you the truly personal service and "stage presence" of your friendly village piper. He is a member of the Irish Fox Clan. His ancestors came from County Antrim. And he often spends his vacations in the Western Isles of Scotland. Hire a piper who is not just a musician, but a warm part of the celebration!

Nearly thirty years' experience in the planning and conducting of Funerals means Bill knows how to help you blend his pipe music with your observance in the most expressive way. His career experience as a retired Episcopal Priest means he knows how to relate to and work with clergy and funeral directors.

He learned the pipes under Pipe Major Robert McElvey, and marched for several years with the Pipes and Drums of the Delaware Valley.

Bill respectfully plays without charge at the funerals of military, police, or fire personnel who die in the line of duty.

Bill is a Traveling Man, always "On the Level and on the Square"

SPECIAL NOTE FOR 2008: NOT AVAILABLE JUNE, JULY, AUGUST

He was awesome!!! Liam was a surprise for my fiancee - - try hiding a bagpiper. Everytime people ask him how the wedding was the first thing out of his mouth is that we had a bagpiper. He was so excited! Liam was incredible. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.
