Outstanding performance suited with charm humour and acknowledgement about the history and making of the bagpipe. Very friendly. Nothing bad to say! Thanks again

This bagpiper played in my work and was so good that we booked him for our wedding to play my husband the guests and myself in to the church and he was absolutely brilliant and a great way to honour our Scottish heritage couldn't of asked for better would definitely recommend him.
Brittanie S

Where do I start? He played at our wedding this week and wow did he make it special. He worked closely with our pianist as I wanted some very specific entrance music and they both pulled it off beautifully. They had everyone in tears (including the registrars and groom) and it quite honestly was perfect. I can’t thank him enough for all he did for us. He made our special day that little bit more magical.
