Piper Richard Dawson was fortunate to have been taught by the very best of piping tutors and carries on the skills and traditions handed down to him.
Richard has given performances several times on TV and has performed in many places around the world including such remote destinations as Australia, the Middle East, and Hong Kong.
Richard Dowson is ready to tailor the performance to your requirements and can include a selection of varied pieces to suit all tastes.
If you plan to hire a bagpiper for a birthday or another special event held in Norwich or Cambridge, you may decide how you would like the bagpiper to arrive and play.
For a traditional wedding, you can choose the variant which is best for you. Here is what can be covered at a wedding:
Service "A" is at the Wedding Ceremony only. Bagpiper is at your disposal from the time your guests arrive for the ceremony until the party departs for the reception.
He can play welcoming music as the guests arrive, then enhance the arrival of the Bride, lead the Bride and escort her up the aisle, play during the signing of the register, play the Bride and Groom down the aisle and outside the church, and for a suitable time during the photographs.
Service "B" covers Wedding Reception only.
The musician starts when the wedding party arrives.
He can play welcoming music as the guests arrive, and enhance the arrival of the Bride and Groom, play for a suitable period during the reception drinks, pipe the guests into the dining room and finish in style, piping the Bride and Groom into the Wedding Breakfast.
Service "C" combines Services "A" and "B".
