"you made our day so much more special. I always dreamed of having a piper play for me at my wedding. I couldn't have asked for more from you. You have so much talent." (Tracy, Bride)
Laurie MacKinnon - playing in Ireland at a Wedding in 2004

My name is Laurie MacKinnon, and I have been playing bagpipes since 1994, and I launched myself as a Professional Bagpipe Player in the summer of 2004.

I am based in Bathgate (Central Scotland).

I have been performing to the public since 1999, and this work has taken me as far afield as Texas and France, as well as many more locations much closer to home!

I have played bagpipes at many different occasions, including Weddings, Funerals, Birthdays, Burns Suppers etc. You can find out more about how I can provide a professional service for your occasion by browsing through the website and getting in touch.
