If you need a bagpiper to play for any occasion from weddings, parties, and corporate events to special ceremonies, funerals and memorial services, I am available. I am willing to travel to any location in the Central Texas area to help you make your event memorable.

I have been playing the bagpipes professionally since 2000, and have helped many people add that special touch that only bagpipes can bring. I have won dozens of awards in solo competition as a nationally ranked member of the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association. I also spent a number of years as a member of Silver Thistle Pipes & Drums, Austin's only competition pipe band, and have competed around the United States and internationally. I traveled with Silver Thistle to Glasgow, Scotland in 2011 to compete in the World Pipe Band Championships.

I can also teach bagpipe and guitar lessons for beginning to intermediate level, and provide services such as bag tie-in, reed set-up and tuning, refurbishing, and repairs. In addition to my experience with bagpipes, I am a formally trained musician, with over 30 years of study, performance, and competition – including guitar, bass, saxophone, and general music theory.

I had Derek out to Starbar downtown on St.Patty’s as well as a few other bars in the area and the results were amazing! He truly is an experienced professional with a great attitude and tremendous talent. All other bars in the area also gave raving reviews of him and how the got the crowd pumped up and excited about the festivities. We will definitely be reaching out to him again for future events!
