Connor is an amazing piper - He went above and beyond expectations! Thoughtful suggestions on songs up to the event, I cannot rate Connor highly enough. Definitely one to hire again in the future!

Im a piper myself and had to get Conner to cover me for a corporate gig after a spot of illness. He was highly enthusiastic and willing to help as much as possible to cover the 2 days playing needed. A great wee piper and a new friend made. Good service . CN

Friendly affordable service. Conor was well dressed for our video and very accommodating to our needs on our special day. Our guests were very impressed with his playing, can’t recommend him enough.
