All services include appropriate assorted laments and hymns from each piper’s own personal repertoire.
TAPS: “Taps” on pipes must be requested by the family: otherwise we defer to the military.
Copyrighted selections: We cannot perform copyrighted musical selections without expressed written permission from the copyright holder. This is a serious legal matter for which our company is held directly responsible for violation of intellectual property laws.
There will absolutely be no exceptions.
If the artist who released the song you have in mind is still living, or has passed within recent memory: odds are that the rights to perform this tune are under strict control.
AT THE CEMETERY:
Piper is stationed by the graveside, and begins as Cars pull up to park.
Pipes continue until casket/ urn is placed.
Piping resumes AFTER the comittal service, as family & friends place flowers / holy water on the final resting place.
We Coordinate with US Military Honor Guard teams.
This service is also available on Irish Uilleann bagpipes; weather permitting.
AT THE CEREMONY:
Although there are exceptions, Pipes work best outside.
We suggest pipes for exit from the Ceremony, as an end to the service, that everyone can experience.
However, we are more than happy to acccomodate your specific vision for musical tribute, if at all possible.
VIEWINGS: Unfortunately, due to noise regulations, we can no longer do lengthy stretches of piping at the viewing as guests wait in line. It is far too loud to pipe inside for an extended period.
We offer UILLEANN PIPES as an indoor alternative
