Your wedding is unique! Your piper should be too. You'll get the traditional sound and tunes you're looking for, from the most frequently hired professional female bagpiper in Michigan and Northern Ohio. With over 35 years of piping experience as a talented competitive bagpiper, I've piped for nearly 2000 events- providing great sounding tunes at an affordable price. Softer sounding bagpipes available- perfect for smaller more intimate venues.

You don't have to be Scottish or Irish to love the bagpipes- a piper adds "WOW"! to any indoor or outside wedding. I play all the poplar and traditional Scottish and Irish tunes that everyone loves, but I also provide unique and traditional wedding tunes which no other piper offers; “Braveheart”, “Here Comes the Bride” or even the popular U of M fight song “Hail to the Victors”!

I am the only piper who gives you a choice of bagpipes; I'll help you choose the right tunes and the right pipes for your wedding venue. Let me know what you’re looking for, I am more than happy to work with you to make your day just as you dreamed it! So relax and enjoy. It’s all taken care of by a very experienced and talented professional. I love what I do- so will you!

Please give me a call at 248-881-8911

Kim was amazing! She was very professional and the perfect addition to our semi-Scottish wedding! All our guests loved the pipes playing and it was an unexpected treat for most! Nothing was better than walking down the aisle to Highland Cathedral! The off-the-wall songs that she also knows really gave our guests a thrill! I really hope we can hire her for a party again!

I hired Kim Johnson to pipe at our wedding as a surprise to my husband's mum and dad. They live overseas and didn't get to be much of a part of our wedding planning. His mum is 100% Scottish and I knew that she'd be pleased if I incorporated part of his Scottish heritage into our wedding. Kim was super responsive and did a great job playing the prelude to our wedding as guests were arriving and being seated as well as playing after the ceremony. I highly recommend her.

Kim was amazing! I found her doing a search online. She was very prompt will all e-mails and made sure to check in with me to confirm all final details the day prior. She played both the processional and recessional and then played for about a 1/2 hour as our guests hung around outside after the ceremony. She was amazing and friendly and even took photos with us in the church after the ceremony.

Kim Johnson was the best Michigan Bagpiper I have ever seen and I have seen many and have heard many, but she went out of her way in playing her pipes for us longer than I thought she would and made my Mom's 78th b-day and my granddaughters 9th b-day the most special they have ever had...Her friendliness and willingness was over and above what most would ever do and I applaude her for not only how wonderful she sounded, but she came in her kilt and looked great!
