Funeral Piper

Phil McConnell Traditional Highland Funeral Piper for hire

To mourn the passing of a loved one a Traditional piper can play at a funeral service as a means of respect and is the perfect send off for your loved one. The funeral Bagpipes add a special touch to any send off providing sweet haunting melodies. They can be used at any type of funeral, whether it is a cremation or burial.

What tunes to play?

The tunes that I play are at the request of the family. If you are not sure what tunes are suitable I am only too happy to discuss this with you.

The tunes that I am often asked to play are:

  • The Dark Island
  • Amazing Grace
  • Mist covered Mountains
  • My Home
  • The Flowers of the forest
  • Oft in the stilly night
  • Westering home
  • Going Home
  • You’ll Never walk alone
  • Danny Boy
  • Flower of Scotland
  • Hector the Hero
  • A Scottish Soldier
  • Highland Cradle song
  • Sleep dearie sleep
  • Lord Lovats Lament
  • Highland Cathedral
  • Abide with me.

I will provide a memorable, dignified and moving salute to the passing of your loved one. Bagpipes can be used inside or outside the church during the ceremony. I can play to lead the coffin from the service to the hearse to take the departed on their final journey. At the graveside the Piper can play as the coffin is being lowered into the ground, and continue to play as the mourners pay their last respects and take a moment for reflection. At this point the Piper can be marching slowly away until the music fades into the distance.

I am a funeral piper for hire, available to play in Lancashire, Cheshire, Cumbria, Wirral, Staffordshire, Manchester as well as Liverpool.

Hi Phil,

Apologies for the late email but I’ve been really busy.
