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 Markle is a very nice young man and plays the bagpippes beautifully. He is easy to talk with and was polite and willing to do whatever he could to please us. We had him play along with our nephew who played the snare drum and also our church organist. They sounded terrific! We had many compliments on the bagpippes. He played alone as well as in the trio. I would definitely use Christian again if I needed a bagpipper and would highly recommend him to others. Thanks Christian for making our daughters wedding what she wanted and such a success!!! Many thanks, The Smith's - Rock Hill, SC

We had Christian play for our son's wedding on 6/24/17 after the reception was over and him and his wife were exiting the venue. From the time we first contacted Christian until the moment he finished playing for us, our experience with Christian was nothing but OUTSTANDING. He was easy to contact, was available to meet with us to listen to his playlist prior to the wedding and extremely flexible in working with us on what we wanted to happen. On the night of the wedding he arrived early in full dress and was prepared for the moment. Christian's appearance and playing was a HUGE HIT. We recommend him COMPLETELY and will use him again for our daughters wedding!!

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.
