Cameron was excellent from the minute we booked with him. Kept in contact, discussed our preferences and provided excellent renditions of our chosen pieces on the day. Would not hesitate to recommend Cameron to anyone.

We had Cameron for my 50th birthday party. What a wonderful piper. Such a lovely character, too. Made the evening magical. Played what we wanted. Created wonderful memories for my family and I. Thank you so much, Cameron 😊

Hi Cameron, Happy New Year and a belated big thank you for playing so wonderfully at our wedding in Ripley. Whilst I didn’t get to hear you play as much as I would have liked, due to bride duties, there have been so many people complimenting you in the letters we have received since the wedding. A New Year’s Eve we will never forget and many thanks for the part you played in that. Best wishes, Charlotte

Hi Cameron, I would just like to say a massive thank you for playing at John’s funeral on Saturday. The choice of music and your performance was just perfect. My husband would be so proud that we laid him to rest this way. Everyone, but especially all of his Scottish friends found the occasion extremely moving, and that is down to you, so many, many thanks.
