Based in Nairn available to perform at venues throughout Highland, Moray, and Aberdeenshire and ideally located for Inverness, Nairn, Forres, Elgin & Huntly
If you require a skilled & experienced piper to play at your wedding, event, or ceremony then look no further - whatever the occasion, you can be sure that Gus the Piper will provide an excellent service for a fair & reasonable price.
Gus specialises in performing at weddings. His duties typically include piping for the arrival of guests & the bride, leading the bride up the aisle, leading the newlyweds down the aisle & later into the reception. Gus will usually play a medley from his wide repertoire of tunes to entertain guests as they arrive at the venue. An upbeat rendition of the tune 'Highland Cathedral' is popular for leading the bride up the aisle. The celebratory tune 'Marie's Wedding' is usually played at the conclusion of the ceremony. Gus will then lead the newlyweds into the reception to a rousing tune such as 'Scotland the Brave'
Gus is also available for other occasions such as making a surprise appearance at a birthday party or, on a more sombre note, playing a moving lament such as 'The Dark Island', 'The Nurses Cradle Song' or 'Highland Cathedral' at the funeral of a loved one.
Gus can accomodate requests for any special tunes.
Gus was brilliant and an excellent sport through a rather strange set of requirements. I would recommend to anyone! - Peter Richardson (producer of The Grand Tour - Clarkson, Hammond & May, Ullapool 2018)
Gus was brilliant. We were undecided on the day of the exact timings and order of the piping but he took it in his stride and got us well organised. The quality of the pipes was fantastic and we really appreciated the extra tunes he played after the ceremony. Gus is a really nice guy and a top piper. We would highly recommend his services!

Gus was absolutely incredible !!! He was kind, punctual, and extremely talented! We had to ask Gus to be a witness for our wedding and he kindly obliged. We appreciated his fantastic attitude, helpfulness, and flexibility on our big day. We also appreciated his time and immense talent. Everyone should hire Gus if they want a talented, dependable, kind, and generous piper. Thank you, Gus!! Brandt Sterling (Urquhart Castle, 2018)
Dear Gus,We are so grateful for the extra efforts you put in learning the Norwegian wedding march. Our family and friends still talk about it!

All the best wishes. From Robin and Eline (Innes House 2018)
