About PiperShire

Pipershire is a community of bagpipers and drummers whose shared mission is to bring high quality bagpiping and drumming to those outside of the bagpiping and drumming community, throughout Chicago and the upper Midwest. They are developing their presents nationwide as well. Apart from the baseline of any good business (responsiveness, professionalism, "bedside manner", etc.), musicians who play under the Pipershire name must be top tier international competitors, as well as good folks. They mean what they say, "Pipershire: quality bagpiping and drumming." Emphasis on the quality.

Services:

Services offered include a wide variety of options, including the below.

*Pricing is dictated on an a la carte basis, and may be subject to travel costs

*all below options can include permutations of multiple bagpipers and drummers

  • bagpipes for procession
  • bagpipes for recessional
  • bagpipes for after before and/or after the ceremony (as people arrive or leave)
  • bagpipes before reception
  • bagpipes as part of a wedding party announcement at the reception

Experience:

All musicians have been playing for a minimum of 10 years, with the majority of that time being spent in competing in the upper tiers of international competition. Tom Hinrichsen,Chicago's main bagpiper, has been playing for almost 20 years in total, with over 10 years in the top tiers, and has performed professionally for the duration. Pipershire can provide feedback to any ideas couples have for performances, tune ideas, and are always willing to be flexible. A phone conversation is not a commitment, but can be a big help in the decision making process.

    Excellent bagpiper

    Had the pleasure of having Tom play for me. He was extremely professional and is tremendously skilled.

    Tom is the real deal. We'd heard him pipe at a friend's wedding and knew immediately that we had to find a way to work him into our own. This guy was born to play the bagpipes, no joke. He played my (new) wife and I into the reception and the crowd went absolutely nuts. Also I can't count how many folks - young and old - have come up to us afterwards and complimented us on the pipes. Extremely fun and unexpected for a guest. Highly recommend. Thanks Tom.

    Abe,

    What can I say; you flatter me. Thank you so much for having us out to help make the day more memorable. Rarely if ever have I seen a couple surrounded by so many good vibes. You're diamonds.

    Thanks again,

    Best piper EVER !!!

    If you're looking for a fun, unique, show-stopping experience, Tom Hinrichsen and his pipes are your answer! Tom played as my partner and I entered our reception. People were shocked, excited, and genuinely entertained! Tom was calm, cool, and collected - with a serious air of professionalism. Definitely recommend! Great work, Tom!
