About Roy

Ex piper with the 1st Battalion The Black Watch, with forty years round the world experience.
Roy Sloane's profile picture

Having played the bagpipes for some forty years, and with a wealth of experience gained from my time as a piper with the 1st Battalion The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment), I offer a unique service that will make your special occasion truly memorable. I'm proud to say that I have had the pleasure of playing the bagpipes for most of the current Royal Family and I've also been a guest at the White House where I played for George Bush senior. Whatever the event, be it a wedding, funeral, party, Burn's night celebration or gala dinner the bagpipes always add a touch of style and prestige; leaving your guests with lasting memories. With every detail tailor-made to your own requirements you can be assured of a professional and personal service. I can play traditional Scots and Irish music, favourite melodies or even requests. Very competitive Rates. I aim to beat any quote you have been given. Just drop me a line or send me an email from the link below, save yourself some money and although I am based in Cambridge I'd be happy to travel anywhere to your event.

I couldn’t have asked for a better bagpiper! Roy created a very special atmosphere at my party, it really was a memorable occasion because of Roy’s performance and amazing presentation skills. Roy is hilarious as well as professional and compassionate. His life experience is vast and he has wonderful stories to tell as well as a sound knowledge of U.K. history. I highly recommend Roy as a bagpiper at your event.

Everybody was most impressed and you certainly assisted with sending father in law off as best we could.

James, 3 years ago

Thank you for such an excellent performance - and it was really interesting for us all to hear about the pipes, your uniform and the regiment.
