Other Occasions

While bagpipes are most popular at weddings and funerals, they can be played at just about any occasion. Over the years I have played at a wide variety of events ranging from birthday parties to golf tournaments. The most common types of events that I play at are:

  • Birthday Parties – play “Happy Birthday” and other peppy tunes. I can also be a surprise.
  • Schools – play in the auditorium and explain to the students about my outfit and the bagpipes
  • Golf Courses – perform by the tee boxes, greens, or clubhouse. At tournaments I’ll play on the 18th green when the last group putts out. I will also play at the awards ceremony.
  • Church Services – play a hymn during the service. Some of the hymns I can play are: “Be Thou My Vision,” “Holy, Holy, Holy,” “Doxology,” and “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee.”
  • Highland Games and Renaissance Festivals

Some other events I have performed at and the tunes that I usually play are:

  • St. Patrick’s Day – “Wearing of the Green” and some Irish jigs and hornpipes
  • Graduation Ceremonies – “Pomp and Circumstance”
  • Bar Mitzvahs and Bat Mitzvahs – “Hava Nagila”
  • Christmas Parties – “Jingle Bells” and “Joy to the World,” along with many other carols
  • Baseball Games – “Take Me Out to the Ballgame”
  • New Year’s Eve Celebrations – “Auld Lang Syne”
  • Patriotic Events and 9/11 Memorials – “God Bless America” and “America the Beautiful”
  • Robert Burns’ Suppers – “A Man’s a Man For a’ That”

There are so many different occasions where the bagpipe can add that special touch. Here is a list of a few other venues where I have performed over the years:

  • Movie Theaters – I played at the premiere of Robert Duvall’s film “A Shot at Glory” in Virginia
  • Radio Stations – including 93.3 The Bone in Dallas,104.1 KRBE & 96.5 The Mix in Houston
  • 1992 Republican National Convention – I played inside the Astrodome and also at a private party for then Governor of Wisconsin Tommy Thompson
  • Prince Charles – played as he was coming off the airplane to visit Houston in the mid-1980’s
  • Television Shows – morning news shows in Houston, Dallas, Denver, and Cleveland; “The Debra Duncan Show” in Houston
  • Cultural Events such as International Festivals and World Music Festivals
  • Martin Luther King Celebrations
  • Camp Retreats
  • Hospitals
  • Eagle Scout Ceremonies
  • Shopping Malls
  • Parades
  • Restaurants
  • Houston City Hall – performed for the City Council on Tartan Day
