Catherine is one of the most talented professional pipers in San Luis Obispo and on the Central Coast with over 25 years professional experience playing the bagpipes. Her broad experience includes weddings, parties, funerals and military, firefighter and police ceremonies and memorials at sea. As Pipe Major of her own student ensemble, Catherine can also provide clients with a mini band of Pipers and Drummers to augment that special ceremony. Catherine's experience as lead instructor for the Central Coast Pipes and Drums and Pipe Sergeant for the Monterey Bay Pipe Band, an award winning competition band, makes her a top choice when hiring a Bagpiper.

Catherine began her training on the Great Highland Bagpipes at age eight studying under renowned instructor Pipe Major Sandy Jones. She has followed her passion by competing regularly. For the past fifteen years she has been an instructor preparing the next generation of pipers to share in the dignity and joy of the Great Highland Bagpipes. Many of Catherine's students have won medals in solo competitions.

Catherine has performed with the world famous Chieftans, as an opening act for Rod Stewart, the Vocal Arts Ensemble of San Luis Obispo, and at graveside services at the Arlington National Cemetery. She donates much of her time piping for community related and non-profit organizations including Relay for Life events which support cancer research, the Peace Officer's Memorial, and Veteran and Memorial Day ceremonies.

Catherine's musicality and professionalism, as well as her graceful and accomplished technique will enhance any ceremony. She is extremely versed in helping you find the perfect music for your event from her repertoire of beautiful and evocative medleys.

Professional and accommodating Catherine kept in contact with me from February to our date in October. Our wedding rehearsal dinner 80-plus guests loved her playing and expressed that it was a unique celebration for our Scottish Gordon wedding event celebration. Very pleased with choosing our piper through Gigmasters.

Every bit of anticipation was satisfied. The pre-service communication was good. My questions were always answered in a timely period. Dad's memorial ended with Irish Hills Piper playing 'Amazing Grace." My family and I are very glad we hired Catherine.
