The Highlanders of the North are Jack and Denise Lundquist. We are a duo of bagpipers from Watertown South Dakota. We have been performing together for 15 years. We perform for parades, weddings, funerals, school assemblies, graduations, nursing homes, family reunions, golf tournaments, and other community festivities. We perform a half hour to hour long show in which we describe the instruments and the culture of several different kinds of bagpipes which include; the great Scottish Highland bagpipe, fireside pipes and a Scandinavian bagpipe called the Sackpipa.
A duo has a unique sound that creates harmony and depth of tone that two bagpipers can produce. We have a large repertoire of tunes and with an adequate advance notice we may be able to prepare a requested tune (if possible). Please bear in mind that the Scottish bagpipe can only play 9 notes :)
With our many years of experience performing for many different kinds of events we are available to perform, even with short notice, in a professional manner.
We have been the official bagpipers for all the events in which we have performed! A list of performances and references will be provided upon request.
We would be honored to be the official pipers for your important event.
