Mr P, 1 month ago

Richard was the bagpiper at our Burns Night in 2020. He was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish, I could not recommend him highly enough. He was punctual, looked the part, his performance was faultless and added a real sense of occasion and authenticity to our Burns night. He was flexible, nothing was too much trouble and he came across as a really nice guy. It was a pleasure to have him as part of our evening. He piped the guests in, piped the haggis in, piped auld lang syne at the end of the evening before doing a solo to round off the evening.

JUST TO SAY A BIG THANK YOU FOR PLAYING AT MY FATHER’S FUNERAL IN BROADWELL ON THE 12TH JULY. IT MAY SOUND A BIT STRANGE BUT WE ALL REALLY THOUGHT IT WAS A VERY SPECIAL DAY AND A LARGE PART OF THAT WAS HAVING A PIPER TO LEAD THE PROCESSION, SO THANKS FROM ALL OF US.’’

David, 11 years ago

MANY THANKS FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO OUR WEDDING ON 3RD MAY AT BLENHEIM PALACE. I HOPE THE PIPING AND MARCH UP TO THE PALACE DID NOT EXHAUST YOU TOO MUCH! WE HAD LOTS OF COMMENTS FROM THE GUESTS ABOUT HOW GOOD THE PIPING WAS AND HOW IT ADDED TO THE SPLENDOR OF THE OCCASION.’’ BEST WISHES, DAVID.
