There is nothing more inspiring than the rich tones of the traditional highland bagpipe, and no instrument more fitting for any event! For the past eight years, Christian Markle has been performing professionally at weddings, funerals, social engagements, birthday parties, parades, and holiday celebrations. As a piper, he prides himself on musical perfection, not only in professional performance but also in regional competition. He has won numerous bagpipe competitions in and around the Southeast, as well as being awarded "Piper of the Day" at the 2014 Charleston Indoor Highland Games and the 2014 Greenville Highland games. You can be assured that hiring Christian Markle means you will have a beautiful tuned, musically masterful musician playing for your event.

Christian is also very punctual. He arrives well before an event in case he is needed. He is also flexible to work with anyone's schedule, and is ready to accommodate to changed plans to the best of his ability. He enjoys meeting new people and counts it as a highlight of every gig. Christian Markle's first class bagpipe and contagious personality makes him a "must have" for any event.

Christian did an amazing job at out wedding. He came early and warmed up, and then played 45 minutes outside with the great highland pipes as guests arrived. He played another 45 minutes with the indoor small pipes during the reception. He was dressed appropriately (traditional Scottish) and was very personable. Several wedding guests mentioned how much they enjoyed talking to him. Most of all, he played beautifully. We received a lot of compliments. Very strongly recommended.

Christian was one of the nicest people I have ever had the opportunity with which to work. He was so very professional, yet so easy and fun to talk with at my daughter's wedding. He played exactly what I wanted, how I wanted it, and I couldn't be happier with him and his performance. He even added a drummer, upon my request. A million thanks to Christian and I certainly hope we get the opportunity to work with him again!! - Beth Gault, Rock Hill, SC
