Andrew was excellent, did me and my family proud thank you so much highly recommended

My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
Given enough notice and if it is a piece that can be played properly on the pipes, then yes.
How much space do you require?
Just a room to get changed in at most. Not always required and dependant on the job type
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
I am fully insured
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
PA and lighting isn't required for my act
How long do you play for?
Most requirements for a piper are for short performances during certain parts of the events. Due to the volume of the instrument, I wouldn't typically play for anymore than 10 minutes at a time.
