Kay Irwin Bagpiper for All Occasions

Available for bagpiping throughout East Tennessee and the surrounding region


Kay Irwin, Bagpiper has been playing for weddings, receptions, funerals, college and university graduations, and many other special occasions since 1995. She is available for bagpiping in Knoxville, Maryville, Gatlinburg, Harrogate, Pigeon Forge, Townsend, Oak Ridge, Crossville, Cookeville, and throughout East Tennessee, Middle Tennessee, and the surrounding region. She is a successful competitor in Eastern United States Pipe Band Association (EUSPBA) sanctioned individual competitions and with the Knoxville Pipes and Drums. She has a large repertoire of traditional and modern bagpipe tunes, both Scottish and Irish, as well as familiar church hymns for your selection.

A long-time member of the Scottish Society of Knoxville and the St. Andrews Society of East Tennessee, Kay became a professional bagpiper following her career as a registered nurse and is free to travel for both day and evening events. She is usually available upon short notice, but advance booking is advised for weddings and other planned events. As can be seen here, and in her albums, she wears the appropriate seasonal Scottish attire for all of her performances. References are available upon request. Brides and mothers are invited to select tunes in advance by appointment.
