$200 - $450 per event
Born in the St Andrews area of Scotland, I grew up hearing the distant sounds of the pipes. I'd run to wherever they were and just listen in awe. When a lad of 16, I joined the Guards School of Piping (Scots Guards) in the United Kingdom and played with the First Battalion Guards. I learned to play with a strict, regimented style - true piping. We were held to a very high standard of piping. While stationed in London, I played at Buckingham Palace (The Queens Residence) for visitors and state banquets and many other ceremonial events during my service. I also played at the funeral of Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

For over 20 years I have been entertaining audiences in a myriad of events. I pipe freshmen college students into their four-year journey of education and pipe them out upon graduation. I have performed countless wedding celebrations; before, during and at the reception; I have been honored to play at numerous funerals; birthday parties; St Paddy's Day celebrations; Red Hat parties for the ladies; military reunions; Highland games; dinner parties; new golf course openings - to include playing for major golf events; marching in small town parades; nursing homes; hospitals; the list is endless!

I am a professional's professional. I pipe to make people happy!!!

Andy and Ann were SO LOVELY for my Grandma's 86th Birthday Celebration!!! I cannot say enough nice words about them, but I will try! They are the kindest people. My Grandma was so enthralled with them. It was THE PERFECT SURPRISE!! Andy is a phenomenal bagpiper and entertained with such ease and charisma. He regaled us with tales of his bagpiping and was open to all song requests. EVERYONE SHOULD HIRE ANDY AND ANN! The ace up Andy's sleeve is his wonderful wife, Ann. She was delightful while playing the pipes and thrived conversating with everyone at the party. I really appreciate her warmheartedness with my Grandma. That is an event that will never be forgotten.
