To play the pipes for any and all occasions.

A Bagpiper in Iowa

They say that music is the language of the soul, and nothing could be more true than the haunting, soul lifting sound of the Great Highland Bagpipes. A Bagpiper in Iowa has played throughout the state of Iowa in all venues.


Welcome. The sound of the pipes will stir your spirits and excite the senses.   As a Naval Veteran, and a retired Peace officer, I Currently  am the Pipe Sergeant with the Mackenzie Highlanders Pipes and Drums. For the last two years I have been the Society Piper for the Scottish Heritage Society of Iowa.   VFW Post 738, Honor Guard.  My pledge to you is this: whether you're celebrating the joys or sharing the sorrows of life, my pipes will play true for you.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Piping to the Seasons

A Story Steeped in Sound

What ever the season, whatever the occasion, my pipes will play true for you. Weddings, funerals, birthdays, or family get-togethers, the sound of the pipes will create a moment of memory for all.

Called to pipe for those who have given their ultimate gift, with numerous memorial services on the State Capital grounds and at grave sites, a piper pipes them home.

Summer and Fall

Iowa State Fair Veterans Parade, as Pipe Sergeant for the Mackenzie Highlanders Pipes and Drums we will once again march for the heros, our veterans.  With other events throughout the summer months, I will wrap up this year-of-seasons playing at the 46th Annual St. Andrews Banquet held at the Des Moines Golf and County Club.
