Music Selection

If it fits on the bagpipes, you can have whatever tunes you like. With a couple of days prior warning, I will learn and play any suitable tune. One good way to choose tunes that I usually recommend would be for you to search for "wedding bagpipe music" on Google and listen to any links you find.


Please keep a note of the link to the file so that you can forward it to me. There are single bagpipe tunes with a variety of different names and there are also names that can be several different bagpipe tunes (did that make sense?). For example, "The Green Hills of Tyrol" is often known as "A Scottish Soldier" due to Andy Stewart, a Scottish singer, writing lyrics to it and releasing as a single.
