Fiona was very welcoming as was the whole gathering, the father of Fiona was very knowledgeable about pipes and piping, He is an ex Major of the Gordon Highlanders and an ex piper himself, and a very charismatic gentleman, I'm pleased they enjoyed the performance . and I enjoyed playing for them very much.

Tony's piping was key to our heartfelt event dispersing my husbands ashes from the White Cliffs of Dover. He piped every tune requested and more. Could not have been more pleased with his participation.

We were absolutely thrilled that Tony played at our daughter’s wedding reception. Faultless. Beautifully presented, wonderful music, so easy to communicate with and to top it all a kindly and polite gentleman. Thank you Tony

The people involved made my job easygoing and enjoyable quite a few of the guests were ex highland regiments, and asked me to play their regimental marches for them, Which I was pleased to do. The setting was great the guests were very gracious, and Some very knowledgeable about pipe music, the weather was great, the whole event could not have gone better.

I have known Tony for many years and he is a first class Piper and entertainer with the Pipes. he is as meticulous about his appearance as he is about his music. I have also had the pleasure on a number of occasions to work with Tony, and always find him very reliable and extremely professional.
