The Great Highland Bagpipes have been on Jim's bucket list since first attending a highland festival back in college. The highlight of Jim's piping career to date has been performing along side the Philadelphia Emerald Society Pipe Band with the legendary Chieftains on stage at the Kimmel Center in downtown Philadelphia, PA.

Serving the Philadelphia, PA, NJ, DE & MD areas, with other areas on a case by case basis. Playing for beginnings, ends and life's every day celebrations in between. Jim has played weddings, funerals, birthday parties, golf outings, conventions, private & public St. Patrick's Day celebrations, participated in countless parades and pipe band competitions with the Philadelphia Emerald Society Pipe Band, busked from Bourbon Street to South Street and has been booked by a couple of pubs here and there. Additional testimonials, photos and videos are available on my Facebook page in my contact info. Thank you for considering me for your event.

We needed a piper on short notice to play at a funeral. Internet searches including Gigmasters rated Jim highly so we reached out to him and a few others. He was the first to respond. We was consistently responsive and professional in every way. He took special requests and dressed in the Scottish tradition we requested. He was flexible with arrangements before and during the ceremony. His music and decorum were perfectly appropriate and helped make the day what we envisioned. I highly recommend Jim to anyone looking for a great bagpiper in Philly or the surrounding vicinity.

My husband requested 2 things for his funeral and the bagpipes are one. My husband would have been very pleased with his performance and the reverence he showed. I was not able to speak with him but I have already recommended him to the funeral director for future needs.
