Other Occasions

While bagpipes are most common at weddings and funerals, they can be played at many other occasions as well.  The most common types of events I play are:

  • Church Services - playing hymns such as "Be Thou My Vision,"  "How Great Thou Art," "On Eagle's Wings," and "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee"

  • Golf Tournaments - perform as players warm up and then play as they exit the clubhouse area to go out to their starting holes

  • Birthday Parties - play "Happy Birthday" and any requests people have.  I can also be a surprise.

  • St. Patrick's Day - play "Danny Boy," "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling," and other Irish songs

  • Patriotic Events - play songs such as "God Bless America" and "America the Beautiful"

  • Schools - play at graduation ceremonies as well as recitals where I explain how the bagpipes work and my attire

  • Highland Games and Renaissance Festivals

  • Christmas Parties - play "Jingle Bells," "Joy to the World," and many other carols

  • New Year's Eve Celebrations - play "Auld Lang Syne"

  • Burns' Suppers - pipe in the haggis and play "A Man's a Man For a' That"

Some other occasions I have played at over the years include:

  • Radio and TV Stations

  • Commercials and TV shows

  • Prince Charles as he visited Houston in 1986

  • Cultural Events such as International Festivals and World Music Festivals

  • Eagle Scout Ceremonies

  • 1992 Republican National Convention in Houston

  • Martin Luther King Celebrations

  • Camp Retreats

  • Parades and Restaurants

  • Corporate Events and Conventions

  • Cruise Ships
