Services of a Professional Bagpipe Player

Item Information

Bidding on this lot has finished


Add a unique and unforgettable element to any special occasion with access to your very own professional bagpipe player who will entertain your guests for an afternoon or evening.

Great School Parent Jean Findlay was taught the pipes from the age of 7 in the West Highlands of Scotland by the great piper Ian Macfadyen. For the last ten years she has been a member of the Pinstripe Highlanders Pipe Band, performing at functions such as the Highland Ball in the Banqueting Hall in Whitehall. She also plays solo for dinners, lunches and Burns Night events.
Bearing in mind that bagpipes are loud and exhilarating, at a formal dinner or lunch Jean can play as guests arrive outside the venue (unless it is below zero temperature!) for half an hour to an hour. After drinks she can play guests into dinner as they move from one room to another, or for Burns Night she can pipe in your haggis! Music consists of a variety of marches, strathspeys and reels, retreats or slow airs, with individual tunes lasting 3-5 minutes each.

This lot must be taken up within a year of the close of the auction. Jean is flexible and will travel anywhere in the UK (within reason!) in consultation with the winning bidder.
