Hiring a piper - NOT for
We often receive phone calls looking for
a piper on short notice. This most frequently is for funerals, although
corporate events sometimes are requested. We will be glad to assist wherever
possible in arranging for a piper. For funerals, it is important to contact us
to arrange for a piper as soon as the funeral date is known. Many of us work
during the day, and it is often difficult to find pipers available for a daytime
funeral. It is much easier to refer someone with a few days notice rather than
trying to find someone for tomorrow morning!
When a piper is arranged, please make
arrangements with the piper as quickly as possible. Although it is natural that
there may be changes, please stay in communication with the piper. I had been
asked to play for a funeral once by the family and was kept hanging until the
night before the funeral, when someone finally got back to me and notified me
that they has decided not to have pipes at the funeral. Although this is OK, I
had turned down a request for another funeral while the family was thinking it
over. I know it's a difficult time, but being all on the same page is very
important. Your funeral director can assist you in planning needs as well.
For corporate events, pipes add a unique
flair. Contact us for more information about some of the events we have
participated in and to share ideas about how to make your event spectacular.
