About Ford

Arizona Bagpiper


Hello, I’m Ford Dudley.


I am an active piper with Glendale Pipes and Drums, one of the most accomplished pipe bands in the Southwest. I was pipe major (band leader) for fourteen years.

I have played in competitions (band and solo bagpiper) in Arizona, California, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, and Scotland.

I have studied bagpipes at the National Piping Centre in Glasgow, Scotland, under the tutelage of some of the most heralded bagpipers in the world.


I have played my bagpipes for five Arizona governors, six universities, six professional sporting events, a few dozen conventions, and countless weddings, graduations, and memorial services … to name but a few.

I look forward to playing my pipes for you at your next event!
