Bagpiper For Hire: Portland, OR & Vancouver, WA
John Goff – the Cascadia Piper, a second-generation bagpiper has performed at hundreds of weddings, funerals, celebrations and parties. As a competitive bagpiper since 1984, John has won numerous awards at band and solo competitions. He is also a multi-talented recording artist inside and outside of the bagpiping world and has worked with scores of artists such as Moby, The Crystal Method, and The Noise Project.
The name “Cascadia” comes from John’s love for the Pacific Northwest and his admiration of the values and ideas that are characteristic of this region. John is particularly inspired by the Cascadia movement, a growing social and cultural movement of responsibility towards our unique resources in the Northwest.
John lives in SE Portland, Oregon. Some of his greatest joys are traveling, meeting people, and playing his bagpipes throughout the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
“Our family and friends were so moved by your music at my dad’s graveside service at Fort Vancouver Military Cemetery last year. Your rendition of Amazing Grace brought tears to everyone’s eyes. Thank you for helping us celebrate a life well lived!” – Dee D.
