Customer questions

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

I always try my best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know

How much time do you need to set up?

I am usually fully dressed and ready to play on arrival. I may need up to 15 minutes out of earshot to tune my bagpipes.

Hi Michael, Thank you so much for making our Burns Night such a success again this year. Manny of our guests, said how amazing the pipes where and your address, of the Haggis. Could we please book you again for our Burns Night on Saturday January 26th 2019, if you could just confirm for me please that would be just perfect. Manny thanks again. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Kind regards Anne.

Michael was an absolutely fantastic addition to our wedding day! He was friendly and professional and we all thoroughly enjoyed him playing the bagpipes for us. He even piped us and all our guests to the reception which was amazing! Even though the timings of our day did not run completely to plan, Michael was so joyful and just went with the flow of the day! We cannot thank him enough for helping us to celebrate our wedding day and will remember him and his bagpipes fondly in the years to come!
