Tim Carey has played funerals for over thirty years at Arlington National Cemetery. He is the only piper who has ever been allowed to play inside Fort Meyer Chapel for a funeral.



"I met Tim Carey many years ago when he came to play his bagpipes at a cemetery that I was working at. Having been in the cemetery industry since the early '80s, I have had heard other pipers before at many services, but when Tim began playing Amazing Grace I soon realized that there was a BIG difference in the quality of this type of musician. During this performance I was working and not mourning so I was able to focus on the music. It was so beautiful and Tim's passion was so evident that it literally brought a tear to my eye and goose bumps to my body. I knew at that time that we needed to connect with him and let other families know that he was available. Since that time, I have had Tim play at dozens of funerals at many of my cemeteries and he participates in all of our holiday services as well. He is truly a Master Piper and I am honored to be able to recommend him to anyone looking to have bagpipes be a part of their burial service."

"Tim Carrey was wonderful! He was sensitive to our family's needs and his music greatly enhanced the service for our mother."

"If you ever need someone to play at a funeral Tim is the right person for the job. He know exactly what to play, how to play it and how to be in the background but still be there. My mother would have been proud to know that Tim was going to play at her funeral and I'm sure she was listening from up above. My family and I appreciated Tim and his music at the grave site at Arlington National Cemetery . "
