Due to Covid-19, for the time being I will not be travelling by means of public transport and will also ask for at least 2 meters distance of myself playing. I also understand that future events will be cancelled so I will not accept deposits for the foreseeable future. I will regularly keep in touch and if I have to self-isolate myself I can arrange for another piper to take my place. Thank you very much for your understanding.

George came to play at my Wee Scottish Granny's funeral, it was so, so much more than we could have ever imagined it to have been. Gran was the centre of our world and we wanted her funeral to be everything that she deserved, it was just that and more! George was beyond incredible, he piped the hearse up to the crematorium and then piped her into the crematorium, he then stood at the front whilst we all walked in, performed half way through and at the end of the service. Her elderly brother who couldn't make the funeral was able to watch online and said he had never seen anything like it. He turned a really sad occasion into a really beautiful one instead. He was so professional, lovely and graceful. I just couldn't recommend him more. Thankyou so much George!

George arrived promptly on time. He was very likeable and respectful but also very professional. He was happy to do anything we wanted and he did so beautifully. My Dad who had passed away would of been so proud. It was a very moving experience and I cannot thank George enough. I would highly recommend him without a moment’s hesitation. Once again thank you.
