Thank you for visiting DaytonPiper! If you're looking for an experienced piper in the Dayton, Ohio, area, Greg Martin would be honored to play at your event. The bagpipes are always appropriate - at birthday and anniversary parties, weddings, funerals, church services, dinners, and any other occasion that calls for the unique music of the pipes.


People often ask Greg if he wanted to play the pipes because of his family background. Although he does have Scottish ancestors (his mother was a MacGruder and his paternal grandmother was a Duff), he wanted to play the pipes simply because he loves the sound!

Greg has Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees and also a Masters Degree in Library and Information Science. He does most of the teaching for the Miami Valley (Ohio) Pipes and Drums. In addition to the Miami Valley Pipes and Drums, Greg has played with several other pipe bands, including the Dayton Thistle Pipe Band, the Cincinnati Caledonian Pipe Band, and Cyril-Scott, and is a long-time member of the Eastern United States Pipe Band Association.
