Welcome to K&R Bagpiping Enterprises.  We are a Maine based company providing a wide range of traditional Scottish bagpipe music for any occasion.  Whether you are looking for a single piper or a whole band, we will work with you to ensure complete satisfaction.  

Since 2008 we have coordinated and/or  played bagpipe music for over 200 public safety funerals including the Line of Duty Death Funerals for several departments. We continue to provide this service free of charge. We only ask a donation to cover fuel expenses. We are public safety pipers and like minded individuals who believe in the tradition and honor of  our profession.


In August 2008, Rob Simmons was appointed as the Funeral Honors Coordinator for the L.A.S.T. team for the State of Maine.

In April 2009, Rob was awarded the Governors Exemplary Service Award for continuing service in planning public safety funerals
