Richard was truly excellent. His piping was the perfect send off for my mother and he even learnt a new complicated piece which my mum requested, which is not normally a piped tune. Many thanks.

Amazing. We had Antoin not Richard and he was a fantastic bagpiper. He managed to cheer up what could have been a sad funeral day with his uplifting music. Prompt, polite and helpful. Thank you so much. Highly recommend.

Richard was an excellent addition to our wedding day, he played beautifully and everyone I’ve spoken to has said how friendly he is! I particularly enjoyed how Richard picked up on our love for Lord of the Rings and played some of the film soundtrack for us to walk out to. We hope he enjoyed playing for us as much as we enjoyed having him perform! Thank you Richard xx

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.’’

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.
