I cannot thank you enough for making our day what we wanted.
You managed to make Clare cry which was the desired effect.
Everyone was saying how good you were. And… you even managed to bring a tear to the eye of one of the Scottish contingent.
I will always sing your praises and will 100% recommend you to anyone that ever asks.
Thank you again.

Thanks Phil for playing at our daughters wedding on Easter Monday 2018 at Colshaw Hall. Everyone loved it particularly the entrance and exit of the ceremony and playing before and after the reception. We would certainly recommend your services which enhanced the occasion.

Phil played at our wedding. It was really easy, we kept in touch via email and met up on the day. The registry office even said he was the beast around. Could not fault and very patient taking all of the photos at the end. Thank you.

Used piper Mconnel for my mother's funeral last week at landican on the Wirral . Dealt with everything with the funeral director and dealt with his part of the ceremony without our direction also advised on the length of music required for the walk in . Was really prompt, respectful and waited until everything had been finished before leaving . Piping was really excellent and price very reasonable. Will use Phil for all of our family events in future .
