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 and compact PA system. He can also supply a baby grand piano shell for an extra touch of glamour. 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!

What They Say About John

We booked John for our wedding at Lochgreen House, Troon & he was outstanding. Everyone commented how amazing his playing was & his singing voice! We are already looking at booking him for another night! He also played during our wedding meal & played my dads favourite song, Moon River,  and I could see a tear in his eye. I would highly recommend John to anyone looking for a pianist as I was very particular who I chose for my wedding. I cannot stress enough how amazing his playing is!!
