NORTH CAROLINA BAGPIPER - VAN W. FRAZIER

As a professional bagpiper, I am available to play the pipes and entertain at any event or occasion such as weddings, funerals, parties, conventions, school assemblies, Eagle Scout Courts of Honor and any Corporate event. I will arrive at your special event dressed in one of my many casual, semi-formal, formal, or historical kilt outfits.

I have been playing the pipes for the past 14 years and my musical talents can change your “OK” event into an “outrageous” event! If you would like to add sizzle and excitement to your special event this year, contact me to see if I am available. I have a large selection of Scottish, Irish, and American Patriotic tunes as well as Christmas tunes that I can perform at your party or event.

I love to play my bagpipes. When I'm not busy with my family, you will find me playing my pipes. Along with my solo piping, I also play with the Cross Creek Pipes & Drums pipe band.

In 2008 and again in 2010, my talents were put to use as I was asked to serve as the Pipe Major of the Nauvoo Pageant Pipe Band for the historical Nauvoo Pageant that takes place each year in the city of Nauvoo, Illinois.


I BELIEVE THAT NOTHING SPARKS EMOTIONS AT A WEDDING LIKE A BAGPIPER DRESSED IN FULL HIGHLAND REGALIA!

I will perform at your wedding wearing traditional formal, semi-formal or folk Highland dress, whatever fits your wedding's special theme. You may select your tunes from a large variety of stirring music, or trust me to select the perfect music for you.

The most requested service for the Wedding Piper is the “Piping In and Piping Out” of the Bride and Groom and the Wedding Party. Often, the Bride and Groom requests me to play outside the church before and after the wedding ceremony. Sometimes they also request tunes to be played during the ceremony inside the church, during the processional, recessional, or candle lighting.

ONE OF THE OCCASIONS THAT I AM FULFILLED PLAYING MY BAGPIPE MUSIC IS AT FUNERAL CEREMONIES.

Music is the universal communicator and it allows for a sense of closure. Many family members and friends of those that have passed have expressed gratitude to me for providing the music that gave them comfort during that time of deep sorrow.
I am available for graveside, church, home or any other locations for funeral services. I also play at wakes, memorial services, and services of all religious and spiritual practices. One of the most requested and meaningful tunes I perform is Amazing Grace. I also have a great variety of other music suitable for all religions and ethnic groups to make each memorial service unique. And of course, I will come professionally dressed in the traditional formal kilt.

I CAN ADD EXCITEMENT TO YOUR SON'S EAGLE COURT OF HONOR!

Your son has worked hard to earn the prestigious Eagle Scout award and his Court of Honor should be special. Imagine the surprise of your guests as a piper appears dressed in traditional Scottish attire, playing American and Scottish tunes. Imagine the excitement as the Color Guard is piped in with a medley of patriotic tunes.

You no longer have to imagine how exciting it would be. I am available to create that excitement for you and for your son on his special day.

Following the presentation of the Eagle award, I will continue to entertain your guests with patriotic tunes from America, Scotland and Ireland. Bagpipe background music will add to the excitement of the reception or dinner party you have provided for your son.

Our wedding had a medieval theme. Van dressed and played the part to perfection. His piping was wonderful, and he was very accommodating in handling last minute requests. It was a pleasure doing business with him, and should I have another event that requires a piper I will not hesitate to contact him. We are extremely pleased with his performance.

There are not enough stars to rank how WONDERFUL Van was! He couldn't have been anymore professional leading up to our wedding and helped me along the way. He fulfilled all our request perfectly! Van is not only incredibly talented but goes above and beyond to ensure that he does everything in his power to make his clients happy! I hired Van as a surprise for my husband at our wedding and my husband has not stopped talking about how that was one of his favorite wedding memories! Van is one of the kindest individuals I've ever met. I will definitely be hiring him again for any future needs!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!
