Welcome!

I have been piping for more than 30 years, and I love it!

And I want to share my love of the pipes with you. I teach, perform as a soloist, and play in bands. I also love sharing the music of the pipes, and that is what this site is all about — sharing the music over the Internet with people who are out of hearing range (Did you know that on a good day and in the right location, the sounds of the pipes can carry several miles?).

So please take a look around my musical world. Download some tunes. Have a look at my world in my blog. And if you’d like to include my piping in your life–please contact me when you have a special event that would be better with bagpipes (and almost all of them are). Over the course of my piping career, I have performed in concert and for weddings, funerals, parties, dinners, pub crawls–just about any kind of event you can imagine. But yours will be unique! Call me at 508-330-6861.

Slainte!

Tom

    Tom has brought me from learning how to read music all the way through playing the Highland Bagpipes. With a large library of tunes and a great many of years on the Pipes, Tom has the ability to meet anyones needs. Not only is Tom a great Instructor but also a great musician to have at a special event.

    Tom Childs is the one of the greatest bagpipers on the east coast. I have been taking lessons from him for over a year now, and it is the greatest thing I have ever done. I have numerous tunes under my belt and have graduated from chanter, to bagpipes in under 7 months. There is no one better to play a wedding, funeral, or party than him. He is very patient, very nice, and has given me the amazing gift of music. Thank you Tom!

  3. Our wedding was special in a thousand ways, but Tom’s piping really tied it all together. For our hillside setting in the fall, piping created a magical sense of time, place and our personal histories. Tom is wonderful to work with–an extremely talented gentleman who immediately got involved in making the day exactly as we’d hoped. He looks darned good in the photos too! Thanks from Betsy (and Art).

    Tom Childs just played at our daughter’s church ceremony. The rave reviews haven’t stopped yet. Without a doubt, the best bagpiper, playing the best music, in all his splendor! Thanks Tom.

  5. Tom,

    We would like to thank you for the wonderful job you did at my son Kevin’s wedding. The bride and groom were certainly surprised. My son said, “Now, it’s a true Irish wedding”. Your bagpipe playing was really beautiful. We will certainly keep you in mind for the future.

    Thanks again,
    Patti & Kevin

  6. I heard you in Hull the other night at the Harbor Illumination…simply beautiful. 🙂

  7. My sister gott married on May 26, 2012 and I hired Tom as a surprise gift. I must say EVERYONE at the church loved listening to his bagpiping. A few guests were from Scotland and they were so excited to have such a talented bagpiper at this special day. Without a doubt I would recommend him for any event.
    Thank you for sharing your amazing bagpiping Tom!
