Whether you boast Scottish ancestry or not, the Great Highland Bagpipe makes a wonderful addition to a wedding ceremony. The volume of the pipes will easily fill the hall or church, and the sound carries beautifully outdoors. Matt would be happy to discuss with you any of the many ways to include the pipes in your ceremony, whether for the procession of the bride, the recession of the new couple, or any other moments that the bride and groom may wish to make a musical statement.
The passing of a loved one is always a difficult time and Matt takes great care to approach each service with the dignity and respect your family deserves. Matt ensures the details are correct, from the tuning of the pipes to his professional appearance and attire. He can perform at the church or funeral home, or at the graveside, or at both locations if that is the family’s wish.
