Iain is a Professional-Grade Competition Piper with over forty-eight years' experience playing all manner of celebration, from weddings to funerals, parties, and corporate and sports events. He is also a composer of note, a member of The Piobaireachd Society, and the Musician's Union. Iain plays an impeccable 150-year old MacDougall bagpie with exquisite tone, and is known for always being appropriately 'turned out' for his engagements, whether it's a somber funeral or a full-dress wedding. For over fifteen years Iain served a the pipe to the Order of St. John of Jerusalem in San Francisco, and has served as piper to Lord Lovat and the Clan Fraser, as well as the Duke of Hamilton, the MacBain of MacBain, and Princess Margaret and the Earl of Snowdon.
From the mournful sound of the pibroch to the stirring strains of military marches and dance tunes, Iain's music will lend just the right tone to your event. Feel free to contact him by phone or email to make an appointment for consultation.
Available just about any time for any job in the Bay Area unless already engaged. Short notice is no problem, but I do prefer 48 hours when convenient. Fully conversant with Catholic and Episcopal liturgy, I have worked with parish restrictions and preferences since I moved to SF in 1990.
Iain was a true professional. Would have him back again.
