Maryland Bagpiper

Francis Wallace


Professional Bagpiper available for your Special Day!


Looking for that enchanting touch; Bagpipes Capture the Magical Romance of a Royal Wedding.  I can offer many unique ideas to help create the Fairy Tale Wedding, with Thirty years of bagpipe playing experience.  Some of the services I can Provide: Coordinate Musical Arrangements with other Instrumentalist, Suggest Appropriate Musical Selections, and Transpose some requested Modern Music Songs.   I have been playing the Bagpipes as a solo Musician and with other instrumentalist including; Church Organist, Brass Quintets, Pianists, Wedding Bands, small acoustic groups and Bagpipe Bands since 1980. 

Pre Ceremony:  "Gathering of the Clans"

Playing outside prior to the Wedding Ceremony to greet Family and Honored Guest's announces that something Magical and Spectacular is about to Happen; it brings Feelings of Anticipation and sets the mood for the rest of the day's events to follow.

 Processional: "Royal  Grand Entrance"

Seating of the Mother's and Grandparents, Groom's arrival, Bride and Bridesmaid's Entrance are all possible opportunities to create a Majestic Atmosphere for your Special Day.

Special Music:

If requested, during the ceremony a Musical Selection for Lighting of the Unity Candle or Special Remembrance is possible.  Also depending on the selection and time to arrange, it may be possible to perform with the organist or pianist.


Customarily a Bagpiper will Escort the Newly Married Couple from the Wedding Ceremony for Photographs, Limousine or to another location.  If the Reception is at the same location or within walking distance, I can escort or process the assembly to the Celebration. 

Receiving Line:

After the Ceremony I am available to play while you greet your Guests or while everyone is leaving for the reception.

The Reception:

Greet your Guest's as they arrive, Perform for the Announcement's of the Bridal Party and or the Bride and Groom, or Escort the New Couple to the Head Table. On Occasion I have had Scottish or Irish Dancers perform at the Receptions with me.

All of these Options or Combinations are Available and if you have another idea we can make it Happen!
