World-class bagpiper in Austin, Texas! I was taught to play bagpipes at an early age of 8 by a WW2 veteran in South Africa, following a failed attempt at the piano. In joining a local South African pipe band I progressed through the ranks at school and even did a stint in the military. I have played in numerous pipe bands around the world, honing my skill set and always looking to improve. I have played at weddings, parties, funerals and corporate events all around the world, including China, South Africa, Zimbabwe, England, Scotland, Ireland, the USA and have even played in front of the Queen of England!
Hire me to play at your special event and add a unique touch of tradition and celebration that all your guests will enjoy.

Worth every penny! I surprised my best friend at her wedding reception with Hylton as she is from Boston and always loved bagpipers. As it was a surprise, it involved a lot of communication and some sneaking and being hid in a back room, but Hylton was more than happy to accommodate. Due to wedding scheduling, he was only able to play a few songs, but it was perfect! She was so shocked she cried! Book him!

Hylton was terrific. He was better than we had even hoped. He was universally accepted and loved by the other cast members. He joined in and truly became one with us. Sometimes hired folks just come, do their number and then leave. Hylton did not do that. We had a show in two acts and Hylton always arrived in more than enough time to get ready for his part and then stayed to join in the curtain call. In addition, he moved into the foyer, with some of the other performers, and greeted the patrons as they left. He was just super.

Hylton piped the family into the sanctuary playing Amazing Grace for our uncles memorial service on 3/17/17. He did an outstanding job and we were blessed that he could accommodate our uncle's final wishes. Thank you very much, Hylton!
