What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I am very flexible in what I do in order to provide the most suitable and smooth service to you that I can. Hence, if your timings change slightly after you have booked, simply let me know.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
This is not required for a Solo Piper.
How much time do you need to set up?
Minimal time is required for setting up; this can vary depending on the kind of event. Simply somewhere to tune up my pipes is all I need.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
I provide a mixture of traditional and contemporary Bagpipe music suited to your events. However, if you would like to know the kinds of tunes I can offer, I can send you a list of appropriate tunes - I am always happy to discuss with you what is best for your event.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yes, I bring all equipment required for my performances.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
I provide a mixture of traditional and contemporary Bagpipe music suited to your events. However, if you have a specific tune that you would like to be played, simply let me know. I am always willing to accommodate this if it is a tune that can be technically played on the Bagpipes.
