Bio

John Rankin is an accomplished pianist and vocalist based in Glasgow. He is available for bookings across Scotland, the UK and Europe.

Perhaps you’re planning entertainment for your wedding day, or need a performer for a work function. Maybe you’re a bar or restaurant owner looking to add an extra dimension to your business, or you’re organising a party at home and want to surprise your guests. John is a versatile performer who can adapt whatever the circumstances and give you a night of quality entertainment. He covers a wide range of music from classical through jazz, R&B, rock, pop indie, soul and much more.

John is happy to use your piano if you’re lucky enough to have one, if not he will bring his own digital piano; he can also supply a baby grand piano shell for an extra touch of glamour. In early 2019 he upgraded his PA to a compact Bose system for a crystal clear spread of sound around the room. He will be glad to meet you and discuss your musical needs over a coffee (or something stronger)! John¬†will learn any requests you have for your event or make playlist suggestions if you’re in need of some inspiration.

Dragged along by the ear to lessons at the age of 5, he persevered and now has over 35 years of playing experience under his belt.  Please check out the calendar on the Contact page to find out where John is playing this weekend and hear for yourself!
