Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try and be as flexible as possible, I’ll do whatever is necessary to accommodate your needs (within reason)

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

As I play the bagpipes I do not come with any PA system but if asked far enough in advance I can provide you with this if needs be.

How much time do you need to set up?

I take no time to set up as it’s just me and my bagpipes.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

You can as long as I get enough time in advance (at least a month)

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I do!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes I can as long as I get enough notice

John was the perfect addition to our Burns Night event. He was very enthusiastic and certainly looked the part. I would definitely hire him again

We hired John to perform at a corporate event at the Museum a couple of months ago, he was very professional and a pleasure to work with.
