Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Unfortunately not it will be just the Bagpipes.

How much time do you need to set up?

I would prefer to have about 30 minutes prior to performing but can work round it if that is an issue.

Of course you can. I always have a chat and we agree on what they would like to be played.

I do indeed! Just a man and his Bagpipe!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I would be more than happy to learn new tunes, just may need to have a chat about what would be liked be played as the Great Highland Bagpipe only has a single scale.
