John was simply excellent.Very professional yet friendly with a wide range of repertoire that enhanced our wedding day. John not only made our day by piping at ceremonial parts, he rocked the occasion when given free rein to play impromptu. We cannot recommend John highly enough. If you want a great piper to make your day special look no further. Thank you John for adding your musical gift to our special day Iain &Hannah

Hired John for my mums funeral. He is so professional. He contacted myself and the funeral home before hand. Made suggestions for a better experience and he not only brought tears to everyone’s eyes but he sounded fantastic.
I would highly recommend John to add that Scottish experience to any event.
