  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$200 - $500 per event
Since 1986 I've performed at a wide range of venues, pleasing a diverse range of audiences. These performances have included weddings, rehearsal dinners, corporate gatherings, military dining-ins, graduations, birthday parties, anniversary parties, processions, parades, school assemblies, church services, memorials and funerals. In addition to many event performances, I am a regular solo competitor at highland games throughout the East Coast and have won prizes in both light music and piobaireachd (the classical music of the highland bagpipe).

In addition to the Great Highland Bagpipe, I also play small pipes which feature a mellow, softer tone suited to certain performance spaces. Several of my sound samples were made on the small pipes.

I will tailor the performance to suit the needs of the client. In addition to a wide repertoire of Scottish and Irish tunes, I have often performed special pieces of music not originally composed for the bagpipe such as: The Cornell University Fight Song – “High above Cayuga’s Waters,” “Kannon in D” by Johann Pachelbel, Wagner’s “Bridal Chorus”, “Theme From Star Wars,” and Jimmy Buffet’s “Margaritaville” to name a few.

I am available, often on short notice, throughout the Baltimore-Washington metro area, as well as Pennsylvania, Delaware and Virginia. Contact me to find out how I can make your next event one to remember.

Paul was amazing, when my wedding was rescheduled because of the snow, Paul was extremely flexible and was able to accommodate our needs. He got to out church early to set-up, he was extremely good and professional. He is excellent!!!

Mr. Cora played the bagpipes for my July 2008 wedding. He was so sweet and accomodating throughout the whole process. We ended up changing the time of our ceremony, he changed his hours to work with ours as well, which was above and beyond what was required of him. He helped us choose music, and gave us recommendations for a recessional song. Our guests we moved and impressed by his performance, as was I. I am so glad we chose Mr. Cora for our wedding.

Paul played at my mother's Celebration of Life Service. I specified 4 song choices and the rest were to be upbeat tunes. Paul did a wonderful job in one of the saddest points in my life. I will be forever grateful to him for helping me carry out one of my mother's wishes!
