Recent reviews of our Bagpipers in St Davids

“Craig was outstanding in every way. His performance made the occasion of my Dad’s 80th birthday so memorable. His communication before the event was excellent and he was incredibly flexible to allow us to keep his appearance a surprise and even put his walking boots on so that he could pipe while walking through Dad’s vineyard at the start. It was theatrical and emotional and I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. Thank you so much Craig! ”

FAQs about hiring Bagpipers in St Davids

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

Can any bagpiper play my favourite song?

Professional bagpipers will often take requests, but you will need to give them plenty of notice. Please also keep in mind that bagpipers may ask for an small additional fee to prepare songs that aren't already on their song list. You can view the bagpiper's song list on their Encore profile.

How much time do bagpipers take to set up?

Your bagpiper will usually arrive about an hour or so before their performance begins to set up and get settled before they start playing. To avoid any delays, make sure the performance space is ready for the bagpiper prior to their arrival.

My venue has asked for the performer’s PLI & PAT inspection certificates. What are these?

PLI stands for Public Liability Insurance. This insurance covers damage to another person or their property (it is also known as third party insurance). As many of our bagpipers are members of the Musician's Union, they are already covered by PLI up to £10 million. PAT stands for portable appliance testing. Most of our bagpipers will already have a PAT inspection certificate for their musical equipment/PA system, which they can provide to your venue if they need it.
