Bagpiper Venice Florida, funerals
Bagpiper in Brandon, Florida

To play a funeral is an honor for a piper.


The event should be treated with respect and dignity.
I am the piper for several large funeral homes in the Tampa and Orlando areas.

I am also the registered piper for military funerals at Bushnell and Sarasota National Military Cemeteries in Florida. Often accompanying the guard of honor.

Piping at a funeral can be an intense and gratifying experience. There is no room for error or mistakes. 

I often talk with the family of the deceased prior to ask what tunes should be played, or give musical advice.

I can wear either full Scots Guards military dress or a formal modern black dress uniform for the occasion.


Nae man can tether time or tide.
