Suggested Tunes

Here is a list of several of the Scottish, Irish and other tunes in my piping repertoire, including suggestions for a wedding, or a funeral or memorial service. If you have a favorite bagpipe tune (or just a favorite song) you don’t see here, ask about it. I may know it or be able to learn it, depending on the tune and the time available before your event.

Bagpipes at a Wedding: Tune Ideas

I can provide music as the guests arrive, play the processional and/or the recessional, and provide music during or after the service, as you wish.

Wedding March
Love Divine (Hyferdol arrangement)
A Love Song for Deborah Anne (lovely 3/4 waltz signature)
Amazing Grace
Highland Wedding
Highland Cathedral
Mari’s Wedding
Murdo’s Wedding
Ode to Joy

Bagpipes for Memorials and Gravesides

During and/or after the service, or at the graveside, typically the pipes play as the casket is carried from the hearse to graveside and at the close of the ceremony; a hymn mid-service is often requested.

Amazing Grace
Martyrdom (Alas and Did My Saviour Bleed)
Flowers of the Forest
Going Home
Lord Lovat’s Lament
Lochaber No More
Danny Boy
Donald Blue
Lament for the Old Sword
Lament for Mary Macleod
Lament for Donald of Lagan


Lord Lovat’s Lament & The Funeral Dance
As per the original score, or abbreviated according to the choreography of your production.

Plus piping pre-show, intermission, or curtain-call, as desired.
