Providing high quality Scottish bagpiping performances in the Greater Seattle, Washington area since 1990, Neil has enhanced weddings, brought a high level of traditional honor to funerals and memorials, entertained at birthday parties, and added pomp and ceremony to many other events. Neil lives in Kirkland, Washington and will travel any distance to play at your event. He is the only full-time professional piper referred by Gigmasters for the Seattle area. All the others do it part-time around their other jobs.

Neil has been the Resident Bagpiper at the Golf Club At Newcastle since 2004, piping the sun down from May through September. Neil also teaches Seattle Firefighters, Seattle Police, King County, and Snohomish County Firefighters Pipes and Drums. In association with these bands Neil can provide a quartet, mini band, or massed pipes and drums. Contact Neil today for a special rate.

The majestic sound of the Great Highland Bagpipe has been used for centuries to inspire warriors, welcome royalty, mourn the dearly departed, celebrate weddings, and bring distinction to virtually any other event. This awesome and powerful instrument adds emotional impact to any occasion, and a piper always provides a striking visual focal point.

As a competitive solo piper, Neil perfected his musical skills, and piping judges have consistently praised him for his "lovely, expressive playing", "great sounding pipe," and "excellent tone and tuning". Neil is a successful solo piping competitor, having played on the boards in Scotland, Canada, California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.

As a long-time member of the Keith Highlanders Pipe Band, Neil has competed multiple times at the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow, Scotland. Playing in this grueling, high pressure contest has honed Neil's confidence as a performer. Neil has performed at many more diverse celebrations including Carnaval in Mazatlan, Mexico, Fourth of July in Ketchikan, Alaska, and the week-long 1000th Anniversary of Clan Keith in Inverurie, Scotland. Neil has made many television appearances and has been featured as a soloist in the Keith's annual Kirkland Performance Center shows since 1998.

Neil was exceptional. He contacted me before the event to ensure all the details were in order. He was prompt, delighted our guests and was such a gracious performer. I would hire him again in a second. Bravo!

Neil played for our wedding and was perfect tion. Having a dress malfunction right before walking down the aisle, my wedding planner asked "what do you need?" I replyed," please ask the piper to play, so I will calm down". The moment the notes hit the air I was calm, happy and ready to go! My groom felt the same way...and our family and guests were thrilled! Thank you so much Neil for bringing a little magic to our day. Hugs and smiles, Deborah and Herbie
