Intuitive, Sensitive & Compassionate
The most requested tune is “Amazing Grace,” which is best used as a stand-alone piece. Other options include reverent music during a prelude or processional, or recessional. Graveside services are greatly enhanced by the sound of a lone piper; the space outdoors allows the piper to stand at a respectful distance.
Neil has brought a high level of traditional honor to many funerals and memorials.
Distinctive Sound of Bagpipes
If you are planning a special event and want to make it more memorable, Scottish bagpipe music will add that unique touch. Seattle bagpiper Neil Hubbard has been providing high quality Scottish bagpipe performances since 1990. Neil has enhanced many special occasions such as birthday parties, company gatherings, engagments and more.

Each event is different, but be assured that everyone in attendance will have an experience they’ll long remember.
