Pipers have been used at military and state funerals for centuries as the bagpipes add a special touch providing sweet haunting melodies. The sound of the bagpipe is the perfect send off for your loved ones. They can be used at any type of funeral, whether it is a cremation or burial.
Robert works closely with several funeral directors in the South West of England, South Wales and the Midlands. You will likely be offered his services by the funeral directors if you are looking to use a piper, however please feel free to contact him directly.
It is not unusual to play at different cultural ceremonies. Robert has played in Christian, Sikh, Muslim and Catholic ceremonies. The pipes draw a tear whatever the families background.
