I am Bob Cameron, Piper out of Braintree, MA. I've been piping for weddings and special events, including some annually recurring special events, since 1989. I'd be glad to work with you to make your event special. I have a variety of uniforms to suit almost any occasion and a wide repertoire. In addition to the familiar Great Highland Bagpipes, I also play Lowland Bagpipes, a bellows- blown variety of bagpipe with a tone similar to the Great Highland pipes, but at about half the volume, and Scottish Smallpipes with a quiet, mellow tone, quite suitable for playing in a small room.

Bachelor of Music degree from Lowell State College 1974, Studied bagpipes under Archie MacLeod, late PM of the Stuart Highlanders of Bedford, MA. Member of The Lowland and Border Pipers' Society and American Federation of Musicians, Local 9-535, Boston Musicians' Association. Author of published collections of original tunes for bagpipes, including compositions published in The LBPS "30 Years of LBPS Tunes " and "From Other Shores", volume 1 published in 2003, Volumes 2 and 3 currently in progress. Performance awards include second and third place in the Lowland and Border Pipers' Association Overseas Division Performance Contest.

Places where I have performed include The Cathedral Of The Holy Cross in Boston, Old South Church, Harvard University, USS Constitution, Hynes Auditorium, The Boston Exposition and Convention Center, Boston Harbor Hotel on Rowe's Wharf, The Seaport Hotel, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Berklee Performance Center, Meadowbrook School of Weston, numerous churches, private homes, businesses, parks and cemeteries in Greater Boston.

I am also a trained tenor, singing opera arias, Neapolitan songs and other art songs, liturgical music and other genres. I have sung the Nationall Anthem in various venues and vents including un-accompanied and un-mic'ed on USS Constitution for an Officer Commisioning and a Retirement.

Uniform choices include Scottish and Irish outfits from casual to formal and regimental.

I wanted to surprise my Mother with something special to celebrate her completing cancer treatments. She has always loved the bagpipes. I found Bob who is amazing and together we planned to have him magically show up in her back yard patio playing a variety of songs and he even learned Abba's Dancing Queen (her favorite song)! He looked perfect and was very accommodating and professional. This is by far one of the best events I have ever planned. I wish I had a need for bagpipes EVERY day, because I would call Bob in a heart beat!

Bob did a fantastic job at our wedding and all of our guests really enjoyed his music. He responded immediately to all of our emails and was great about following up regarding the planned schedule, attire, and music for the ceremony. We definitely recommend Bob for anyone looking for a talented, professional bagpiper for their wedding!

Bob Cameron was perfect! He played the bag pipes before and after our wedding ceremony and was exactly what we were hoping for. So many of our guests commented on how great it was to have Bob Cameron playing and greeting them as they entered and exited the church. We would absolutely refer Bob Cameron!
