Ronan was fantastic. A very professional piper and a pleasure to work with. He couldn't have been more passionate or understanding of our requirements and went out of his way to ensure guests had a great evening. We'll definitely be using him again and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others.

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The emotions that the bagpipes can bring up is unparalled! Truely something that hits the spot on the occasion

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed in many different venues from churches, highland games, competitions and even abroad!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

My Band! They are very knowledgable and have helped me grow!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I once performed in schipol airport and it was posted to their social media.

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

I'm flexible with timings, its great to get as much notice as possible

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

Unfortunately I cannot provided iPod/DJ services between sets, but I can perfrom continuosly.

How much time do you need to set up?

Around 15 minutes, a good 20/30 minutes is ideal prior to the performance. This allows the drones and bagpipes to get warmed up.

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

Absolutely! I have a set of tunes which are intercharable. I'm happy to play anything on the list, I'm also happy to take requests, however I'd ask for some noticeof a month or longer before hand to get to grips with tunes. I'm happy to play the tunes at specific moments of the night and I take requests to not play specific tunes for certain situations.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I bring my bagpipes and highland wear. If anything like a Sigian Dubh is required I can bring that along to.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Absolutely! I enjoy learning new tunes, I'm happy to take song requests. I do ask that as much notice as possible is provided, so that I can ensure that the tune is well learned and memorised before the event
