Testimonials:

This piper recently provided the service of being piper at my father's funeral. At my family's request he wore the kilt and full highland piping regalia, his appearance and performance was stunningly beautiful. He phoned me as soon as I booked him, to find out how the service would run, and advising us on the music, the traditions, and service he could provide. He was supportive, and professional, and his skill with the bagpipes was hauntingly beautiful. I will be hiring him again!

Originally we booked one piper for our wedding, we then realised a drummer was essential to complete our day. We feel that having a mini band as suggested t really made our day special. The pipers and drummer were fantastic and added a really unique touch from helping us choose the music through to educating us on the traditions of having pipes. Thank you and your team you made our day even more fabulous and something we and our guests will remember for a long time to come.

This Piper recently was our chosen Piper for our Wedding in Wroclaw, Poland. His professionalism over our two day traditional Polish wedding was second to none. We had 100 guests 70 Poles and 30 Brits and throughout both days he was there and interacted with all our guest and have to say he was the star of our wedding. Thank you very much for making our wedding so special we will be booking him for our first anniversary here in the UK”

This Piper has performed at our Annual Burns Supper for three consecutive years. His professionalism appearance and standard and Piping are excellent and we will always be rebooking his service

This Piper was a God-send. He became involved in the Commemoration of Outbreak of War service at the last minute, stepping up to help in an emergency, and was a real asset to the Church. His playing is exemplary- and the moving, haunting sound enabled everyone to connect deeply with the poems and readings, the honouring and remembering, and the moving of all of us on to commit ourselves to peace. I have no hesitation in recommending him for church services and hope to see him at weddings in the Upper Kennett Benefice. Rev Maria Shepherdson, Rector

"Many Thanks to this Piper, he was fantastic, Could never of wished for a better Piper to share my daughters day I highly recommend him and. thank you so much"
Caz.McKeirnan

I booked this piper to play the bagpipes at my wife's 65th birthday party and found him to be absolutely excellent. Prior to the event he contacted me to discuss the content of his performance and arrangements for the evening. On the day his playing was beautiful, including superb renditions of Flower of Scotland, Scotland the Brave and Happy Birthday to You! He was immaculately presented in full Scottish attire, kilt, tartan, sporran etc. He has a warm and charming personality and engaged in conversation with the guests, posing for photos etc. All in all his presence and performance took a small birthday party to another level and ensured that the "Birthday Girl" and all her guests enjoyed one of those rare moments in time; an unforgettable evening that will be cherished, treasured and remembered forever, Absolutely fantastic and very highly recommended.
Chris Lonnon

He played brilliantly and gave our Dad the proper Scottish send off he deserved. Several people said the piper made the whole service. It was certainly the most emotional part for the family. We feel such admiration for the professionalism, he continued to pipe all the way to the graveside despite the heavens opening. We would certainly recommend him

I had the pleasure of booking this piper for my Grandmother's 90th Birthday party. From the moment of booking he was really responsive and proactive. He knew the venue and had ideas about how to ensure the element of surprise and regarding the music for the event. On the night he arrived early, looked superb and played a great selection of tunes. He was also very flexible and happy to pose for photos with the family and paid special attention to the guest of honour. His performance made the evening and my Grandmother could not have been happier. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any event.
