My name is James Freeman and I am a seasoned professional bagpiper with over 20 years of performing experience. Serving Fort Myers, Naples, Port Charlotte and all of S.W. Florida, I offer Irish & Scottish, patriotic and popular music for all occasions, and I am available to perform 24-7 for your special event - weddings, Funerals, Birthdays, Corporate Events, Memorials, Anniversaries, Pub Concerts, Educational, etc. I offer a growing list of 146 tunes (please email me for full list), performed with musical excellence, fine finger-work and proper intonation - be sure to check out my piping videos in the "media" section of my profile. Before choosing a bagpiper to hire, you'll want to listen to videos from each vendor as there are big differences in quality of musicianship. When you are planning a once-in-a lifetime-event, you'll want to ensure that all of your vendors deliver the very finest to make it memorable and special. My Scottish smallpipes are also available for indoor events where you may want a quieter instrument. Also, being of both Irish and Scottish heritage, I have kilt outfits in each for your selection if desired. Additionally, I offer combination lecture/performances for educational institutions and community organizations, speaking on the history and technical aspects of the Great Highland bagpipes and smaller parlor bagpipes, and the traditions of kilt attire.

I have performed for hundreds of private and public clients, marched many miles of parades as a soloist and with two pipe bands. Fire Companies and other public service organizations often hire me to solo pipe for their parade marching units. I have performed at the U.S. Open, Germain Arena and other sports stadiums, on television and out at sea on charters and private boats. Most performances I do will cost $225 for an hour of reserved time, and within a travel radius of one hour. Distances greater than that typically run $250 - $300. Half or full day event performance at festivals or parties can be arranged.

I have a great working relationship with event planners and service/funeral directors for my customer service, musical skill, flexibility and reliability, plus many families have me back for their other events. Several times recently I've had a short notice request from clients needing a particular tune that I didn't know. I was able to learn the music quickly and deliver a fine performance the next day.

James was wonderful. He really made my daughter's wedding a special event. Even the non- Scots came away loving the bagpipes. I would hire him again in a minute!
