About Baltimore Bagpiper Francis Wallace

hired 1 time on Thumbtack

Baltimore bagpiper Francis Wallace:

I have played bagpipes for weddings, funerals, special occasions, gatherings, and events, and have been performing within the Baltimore, Annapolis, and Washington D.C. metropolitan areas for over 30 years.

We also have more bagpipers and drummers, dancers, and bagpipe bands available for engagements. I have been performing solo and with other instrumentalists, including church organists, brass quintets, pianists, wedding bands, small acoustic groups, and bagpipe bands since 1980.
Performed with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra at the Strathmore and the Meyerhoff 3/11

Your guests will always remember the extraordinary and unique distinctive sounds of the bagpipes at your next event for years to come.

Contact me for more information, and it will be my pleasure to assist and share in your celebration or to honor the memory of a loved one.

I look forward to serving you!

Thank you for your consideration.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. It started as a hobby and I'm still having a great time doing it. Weddings are always enjoyable, it's wonderfull to be part of such a joyous ceremony.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. The answer to this would be "What do you wear under your kilt, or are you Regimental?
There are many answer's to this question that I cannot post on this site. First answer would be ask my wife.
Another answer I will give is my socks.
If you want to scare a bagpiper wear mirror's on your shoes or flash a camera cell phone.

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. Competition is very tough these days, When you hire a bagpiper please remember that the instrument was meant to hear over cannon fire!
If you decide to hire a novice or inexperienced player because they are cheaper you and your guest's will know right away.
There is no hiding from BAD BAGPIPES.

It is best to hear in person or see videos of perspective performers. When I perform I feel that my clients are paying me for my time to do just that. I have never had any complaints for not playing enough.
When you hire a piper you are not just paying for playing time but you also have to take into consideration time spent at your venue prevents engaging another client or spending time with the family.
