About Millie

Bagpiper based in London and Hampshire
Bagpiper
London
Public liability insurance of £1 million

Bagpiper with ten years experience playing events, birthdays, weddings, funerals and memorials, Burns Nights, NYE etc! I learnt bagpipes at school as a third instrument on music scholarship. While it was meant to be my side-line instrument (piano and trombone being primary), the bagpipes captured me immediately and I've loved playing them since. No matter where you are from, hearing bagpipes at a special event, or from across a misty hillside, can stir something in the listener. Whatever your event, party or special moment, I'd love suggest music to make it memorable.

Funeral Farewell Song
This is a lower rate for funerals in the London area, where just the one or two pieces of music are required for the service. As with all my prices, these are guidelines and can be adjusted depending on your requirements. Message me with what you have in mind, I respond quickly and am happy answer any questions.
£110
A key moment
A few songs for a key moment! This is for a few sets, up to 20 minutes, around 5-10 songs or as required. For example, you’d like a piper to play happy birthday at a surprise birthday, without having to book a piper for an hour. Or a few songs after a ceremony, piping in a haggis at burns night, or bringing in the new year with Auld Lang Syne.

Millie was fantastic. She gave suggestions and ideas which made her performance even better. She was understanding about timings as we were running a little late and still accommodated our needs. She was the highlight of our event and I would highly recommend her to anyone. In addition, Millie was helpful and friendly and a pleasure to work with.

Booked Millie through a friend’s recommendation for a surprise birthday party. Her piping was spot on and definitely was the highlight of the evening. Was impressed by her professionalism while also being easy going and fitting in around our haphazard plans. Thanks!
