Hi there my name is Alex Burt a Scottish Bagpipe player and welcome to my site . This site is for anyone wishing to obtain the services of a Scottish Great Highland Bagpiper within the South East of England centered in Kent but covering all of the South East of England. I can travel to most places at short notice and in a dress uniform that suits the occasion. I wear the full highland dress uniform with a choice of tartans including Royal Stewart - a famous red tartan , Modern Cooper - a deep purple and green tartan , Hunting Stewart - a green and blue tartan and for a solemn occasion a purely black kilt can be worn. I also wear a No 1 dress of tunic with shirt and tie , day wear with jacket and waistcoat , evening wear with tailed jacket and waistcoat , a re-enactment dress from the 1950's with Khaki Tam o' Shanter , battledress jacket and khaki socks or even a pair of purple tartan trews with jacket and shirt. A dress then for every event and every occasion. Please see the photo page for examples of the various dress options.
I cover weddings , Burns nights , funerals , corporate events , remembrance services , private parties , and birthday parties with suitable music for any mood required. My aim is to play for the event as required and to promote the great highland bagpipes.
The costs of hire are dependent upon the distance to travel , the uniform that is required , and the time spent at the event but all costs are within a modest budget. An example would be a wedding in full highland dress playing at the church or registry office and again at the reception anywhere in Kent and being available for around four hours in the day and the cost for that would be £175.
