Rates And Booking Info

Rates vary on the type of event and proximity to Wooster. General rate range is $250-$400.

The rate charged is not based on the amount of time performed but rather based on Nathan’s experience and the quality of music he provides. His background is in solo and pipe band competition that has taken him all over the world – including competing in highest level in pipe bands and having studied world renowned piping instructors. You can get cheaper, but you won't always be guaranteed the quality.

Nathan charges by the event, not by the hour. Like most hired musicians, a funeral service in a church and a graveside service are considered separate events. A discount is offered for playing both.


It is important to note that there are occasions when Nathan has the right to refuse playing outside. These situations include harm to his bagpipes/himself and anything involving extremes in weather conditions.


Nathan accepts cash or check. He requires payment on the day of the event and prior to playing.
