Thank you for visiting my Bagpipe site. Here is a little bit about me:
I’ve been playing the highland bagpipes for most of my life. I was taught as a young boy by Dennis McMaster, former pipe major of the Salt Lake Scots Bagpipe Band. I played as a competitive bagpiper for many years and won several solo and pipe band competitions in the Western United States Pipe Band Association. In 1994 I traveled with the band to Glasgow Scotland to compete in the Bagpipe Band World Championships. What a great experience! I left the Salt Lake Scots Bagpipe Band in 1999 and went on to pursue other opportunities.
During the summer of 2005 Michael Gibbs, an old bagpiping buddy contacted me about forming an association of professional bagpipers. That October the Heathen Highlanders were born and we are still going strong. It’s in this group that I coined the catch name “Bagpipe Heathen.”
I have performed at just about every kind of event imaginable and had a lifetime of great experiences as a musician and performer. I’ve shared the joy at weddings and parties with my clients, and I’ve mourned with them at funerals of their loved ones. I’ve been honored to provide bagpiping services for the memorials of veterans, fire fighters and law enforcement officers. All true American heroes.
This is my legacy as a bagpiper… One that I will continue.
If you would like to hire a Bagpiper for your event please contact me @ 801-661-4168
I would like to thank all of those who taught and mentored me as a piper and a special thanks to my parents, siblings, wife and children for the years of support and encouragement they have given me as a musician.
