Welcome

   I perform throughout Northern California at weddings, memorials, 
parties, openings and ceremonial events of all types.
   The sound of the pipes lends an elegant touch to any event whether somber or celebratory.
With over 30 years as a professional piper and a repertoire of hundreds of tunes, I work closely with clients to select exactly the right music for their setting!

Not all bagpipers sound the same. If you are thinking of hiring a piper listen to him first:
Click and Listen to Amazing Grace

( from my CD: "Art Music for the Highland Bagpipe: Meditations & Marches")

Click and Listen to A Portion of the tune- War or Peace

( from my CD: " Piobaireachds of the Western Fencibles Regiment")

December, 2012     Peter Kapp played a wonderful farewell to my uncle Col Stanley McMaster in the Marin hills in December 2012. Not only was his music both inspirational and moving, but he cut a magnificent figure in full highland fig, standing silhouetted against the afternoon sun. His presence both enhanced and dignified a sad but important occasion in our family history'. Cheers,
Peter Millar

November 2012    Peter Kapp played the bagpipes at my father's funeral last week. His music and presentation made for a wonderful tribute to my father's Northern Irish heritage. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend him. I will be forever grateful for his contribution to the ceremony. Thanks again, Peter

May 25, 2012     Dear Peter, I just wanted to write you and tell you how much I appreciated what you did for us, yesterday, at my father-in-law's funeral. Your playing was amazing and everyone commented on how nice it was that you were there and how great your playing is. You were professional, sympathetic, and intuitive. I can't tell you how glad I am that somehow I was able to pick you out of all the other bagpipers in the area.
As my 12-year-old son said, "Wow! The bagpiper really made me feel emotion. Really sad." Which is exactly what I wanted to happen - so that the experience could be more real for him. And, then my son added, "he really made the whole day."
And, thank you for playing "ode to joy." Beethoven is my most favorite composer and I loved that you ended the ceremony with that cry to heaven.
Best to you, Peter.  - Mae McLean
