About Cliff Hall

Professional Bagpiper Cliff Hall. Available for any special occasion. First Class musicianship and performance.

From and early age Cliff has competed and performed around the UK and abroad. His extensive repertoire and musicianship enables him to adapt and taylor the performance to suite the requirements on the day. Cliff has been competing and performing from an early age and currently competing with City of London Pipe Band where he is also involved with teaching and maintaining music standards. Cliff also teaches adults and youngsters outside the band environment. He has public liability insurance and CRB checked. Bagpipes often get bad press because unfortunately there are people who claim they can play the pipes but who are of a poor standard……we've all heard them. Cliff will work with you to ensure all your requirements are met and will deliver a professional musical performance.

Cliff was amazing! So friendly and the most beautiful bagpipe player. All our wedding guests in Church thought he was wonderful - I lost count how many people came up to us to sing his praises! Thank you again Cliff and for anyone looking for someone to play the bagpipes, advise you and help with song selections - this is your guy!!

Cliff was absolutely exceptional. He really brought the wedding to life and had everyone on their feet from start to finish. Also an absolutely gentleman to deal with in the planning stage.

Hi Cliff, Just a short note to thank you for your excellent contribution to my mum's funeral. Your playing was outstanding and everybody thought you did an excellent job. I am sorry I was not able to talk to you but you know how it is at funerals. You made a sad occasion bearable as mum was getting what she wanted. Thank you so much. Carol

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I will aim to arrive 1 hour before the start time to allow time to change, tune-up and be ready in position. If there is any change to the agreed arrangements just let me know in advance.

How much time do you need to set up?

A minimum time of 30 minutes is needed to set up. I aim to allow 1 hour to allow for any unforeseen circumstance.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

You can pick tunes from the set list or request a few particular favourites to be included whilst leaving the rest to me.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I come with my pipes and uniform.... everything I need to perform.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

In most cases, and If do-able on the pipes, I can learn specific pieces of music if given enough notice.
