Callum Watson (BMus, Monash University) is a Victorian Highland Bagpiper. He is an acclaimed, world-class bagpiper for hire specialising in music for wedding ceremonies, funeral services and public events located across Melbourne, Victoria and beyond.

Callum has vast experience performing at special events in every corner of Victoria for over ten years becoming one of the most sought-after bagpipers in the state.

Callum will bring a touch of theatre with his emotive performances helping create an event you and your guests will remember for a lifetime. As a part of his music degree, Callum majored in composition and studied music arrangement for which he is sought after internationally. So if you require something unique through to standard tunes, Callum is the piper for your event.

You don’t have to be Scottish or Irish in order to have bagpipe music at your event, this is music for all. 

How long the piper plays is totally up to you.  We have packages to suit all possible needs.
Callum can play from the traditional Scottish repertoire or can perform your special tune.

A pristine traditional dress uniform in Callum's family tartan, as tradition dictates, will be worn at your event which adds a unique touch to your photos.

Bagpipes are suitable for any range of environments including beaches, parks, gardens, or traditional churches and halls. Contact us today, we'd love to have a chat.
