"A sound like no other."
Welcome to North Georgia Piper. Whether you want the singular sound of highland bagpipes to enhance the celebration at your wedding or special event, or to provide fitting accompaniment at a memorial or grave-side service, please call or email. I look forward to hearing about your occasion, answering your questions, and discussing how the pipes might best add just the right touch.
I have extensive performing experience in a variety of venues and events. The site pages here include a sampling of special events for which I've played, along with a few brief notes about the pipes, and my piping. Thank you for visiting.
I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for playing at Ian and Jenna's wedding last weekend. Your presence made a day that was already going to be special a truly memorable experience.
I hope our paths cross again someday.
Thank you so much for playing at Casey's wedding. The music was delivered beautifully. We couldn't have asked for a better musician. Everyone has commented on the lovely music and how it was perfect for the setting; it was just the right touch. We truly appreciate your professionalism and obvious love of what you do.

I was exposed to my Scottish heritage early and loved the pipes early on. I began studying at age six on the practice chanter under Herb Crowe, pipe sergeant of the Wilmington Pipe Band (Wilmington, Delaware). I went on to study under Robert Gilchrist and played with the Wilmington Pipe Band and later the Olgilvy Pipe Band, both led by Bob Gilchrist.
Today I enjoy playing solo events and with the North Atlanta Pipes & Drums (Suwanee), led by pipe major Brad Beaton and drum sergeant J.J. Hayden. Looking for a band of pipes and drums? Give me a call!
