I am the #1 bagpiper in Los Angeles listed by Gigmasters and I have 50 5 star reviews, and many more not on Gigmasters. For 20 years I've expertly played the pipes for weddings, birthday parties, memorials, surprise parties and other special occasions and made them UNFORGETTABLE. It has been my great privilege to play for, and comfort family and friends wishing to honor their loved ones as well at memorials, funerals and celebrations of life. I am also quite popular at weddings- each one is customized to the exact desires of the bride and groom and surprises are doable too!

Over the past two years I have performed at over 170 events and I have never had anything less than a 5 star review.

As a client of mine you can expect: an outstanding instrument with a beautiful sound, played expertly- it should sound absolutely wonderful; an easy process- it should be as easy as possible- I will communicate to be sure everything is crystal clear; a bagpiper who is 100% reliable with a perfect on time record- I am usually early to every gig to be sure you are not stressed; a professional at every stage of the event - pressed and looking smart; and lastly a piper who is approachable and friendly- I am an ambassador of sorts and I love to meet new people.

I have a wide repertoire, and can expertly tune and play a great sounding bagpipe. I believe that I am not merely at your function to "entertain" but to "enhance" the event with my music and appearance. My bagpipe is completely setup to give the best tone possible with wonderful harmonics. I use a sheepskin bag and real cane reeds for the absolute best sound- no plastic reeds here! No squeaks, no squawks.

I come to your event completely attired in Highland gear-kilt, sporran, Glengarry, jacket, etc. Looking pressed and smart. :) Many times clients are very happy with how smart I look. I'm also ready for photos if the need arises.

I am prompt, courteous, friendly and reliable. Check out my website for reviews, photos, sound samples, and I also have a Facebook page that has more day to day information- Bagpiper Stephen Wilkinson.

Please contact me today to discuss what you need. That is what it is all about, what I can do for YOU. I will get back to you immediately. I cover the entire LA area as well as the Inland Empire. I have never had a client regret hiring me- ever. Thanks for your time and consideration.

Also when comparing bagpipers look at how recent the reviews are. My most current ones are on top so you know what you are getting now- not relying on a review from years ago. Gigmasters does not review bagpipers so there are some good ones and some..... please listen to them and look at reviews. Thanks again for considering me.

Stephen was outstanding. He was professional and everyone was.mesmerized by his playing. One guest stated" That was the most outstanding thing I've ever seen at an inside party, he was the best!". I would definitely recommend Stephen. Thanks for the connection.

Stephen Wilkinson Highland Bagpiper’s Response:

Susan and Bruce were such gracious hosts. The weather was not cooperating- rain outside, so they moved me inside to a great location where I could play to all the guests from an upper landing. The pipes were singing and I ran through a number of favorites and a couple of requested tunes from Susan. It was a super party- I was glad to be a small part of it. Thanks Bruce and Susan. :)

We are most pleased with our decision to hire Stephen. He was nothing short of a hit to start the reception part of our wedding when we were announced as husband and wife. We received numerous compliments from guests, who were also impressed with him and thought it was great addition to a wedding. We definitely recommend Stephen if you are considering a bagpiper.

Stephen Wilkinson Highland Bagpiper’s Response:

This wedding was a gorgeous affair and the wedded couple and their guests were so welcoming. We got some photos afterward and I was able to play just before the reception got underway. It is always a pleasure to play for people who really appreciate good bagpiping and I was very happy that they enjoyed it. Thanks Michael and Jacquie and congratulations again!

Steve was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. He was very accommodating with music suggestions for all facets of my wedding, showed up early, and played a fantastic show. Several people in my neighborhood ended up getting his business card. I would HIGHLY recommend Steve for any event. Phil McCormac
