If you have any questions about your engagement please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to help.

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 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.
