Tony was very cooperative and played magnificently, even in adverse weather and light conditions. His performance, at Dover Castle at dawn on Remembrance Day 2018, was very poignant and touching and I feel honoured to have witnessed it.

Fantastic experience. My family were totally blown away with Tony's playing and song repertoire and we had some singing and photo-ops. He really connected with his audience and gave exactly what they wanted and more. Totally professional and a personable and he gave us very good value for money. It was a great experience from booking to saying goodbye. I would book him again without question.

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.
