The tradition in a Burns supper welcoming activity is that pipers would play their bagpipes while the guests are entering the venue of celebration. Hire a band of pipers who can play amazing songs. If you do not have enough budget for that, then just ask for some people who can play the bagpipes and let them practice for some time.
Of course, the pipers would not be able to play without bagpipes. If you have hired a band of pipers for the welcoming activity, then most likely these pipers would already have their own set of bagpipes. However, if you only ask some people to play, then go to some friends who can let you borrow some or rent from some musical shops.
The pipers would of course play a specific song while welcoming the guests. Make sure to choose a song that would be very lively in welcoming so that your guests would feel the initial hype. However, if you want a sophisticated and chic entrance of guests, then go for a sophisticated song as well. Better yet, choose a song that was written by Robert Burns himself to make the celebration much more commemorative. When is Burns Night 2017 in London Edinburgh Glasgow Scotland
