Customer questions

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

Generally should not be a problem, just let me know the details.

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


How much time do you need to set up?

I usually only need around 20-30 minutes to tune up and potentially to change into uniform depending on plans that day.

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

Yes I am happy to discuss all of your needs and wants.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes of course.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I am very happy to take tune requests, my only ask is that as much notice as possible can be given to ensure said tune(s) are soundly learned ahead of the event.

Thanks you Ranald! Your contribution to our fund raising event added tremendously to the atmosphere and style of the evening. The many HNW individuals, Downton Cast, Crew and leadership loved it. Hoping we can get you back for our next event in 2020.

"We've worked with Ranald for a number of events now and have always been really impressed with his musicianship, professionalism and understanding of the role required. He's an exceptional piper that can really get the crowd going - equally comfortable soloing in the spotlight or in the background creating a wonderful atmosphere. Highly recommended!"
