Iain Carr | Scottish Bagpipes
Adelaide, South Australia
Scottish bagpipes for weddings, wedding receptions, parties, corporate functions, funerals, memorial services auctions and all special occasions.

My name is Iain Carr, and I am one of South Australia's most experienced pipers. I have played bagpipes for over 25 years both as a soloist and in Australia's highest graded pipe bands. I can provide bagpipe music for any occasion including...

  • Weddings, wedding receptions and commitment ceremonies
  • Funerals, memorial services and wakes
  • Birthday parties
  • Corporate events, retirement functions and auctions
  • Burns nights and hogmanay (new year's eve)

In addition to playing in a number of Tattoos, I have performed in concert with musicians such as John Farnham, Rod Stewart and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. I wear an immaculate uniform featuring kilts of the Stuart of Bute and Black Watch tartans.


The sound of bagpipes at your wedding will add atmosphere to the occasion and make the day memorable for all. There are a number of times throughout your wedding ceremony when you may like bagpipe music...

  • The arrival of your Guests
  • Piping the Bride down the aisle
  • Signing of the Marriage Registry
  • Piping the Bride and Groom out of the ceremony

Of course, everyone's wedding is special and you may like something distinctive and individual. Please do not hesitate to contact me with your suggestions.
