Keith was brilliant. Treated the whole occasion of my Fathers funeral with utmost respect. He liaised well with undertakers. Kept good contact with me leading up to the funeral but not intrusive and played a fine selection of songs . Everyone said the piper really made his celebration of life VERY special. Thank you Keith! Lovely man too.

I have worked with Keith on many occasions throughout my Piping career. This has included local fetes to Military Tattoos abroad and even Ceremonial occasions, the most memorable one being leading the Parade at the Queens Birthday Patrons Lunch. Not only does Keith have a large portfolio and many years experience, he always presents himself professionally and has fantastic communication. he is a pleasure to work with.
