Ryan played his pipes at my Aunt's funeral as we arrived to the church and he piped my Aunt out of the church and as she was placed within the hearse.
It was a fulfillment of one of her last wishes and he provided an excellent service in every way. He continued to play as we dispersed from the Church grounds too.
My Aunt's Care Home Manager commented that he heard the Piper when he was leaving the Care Home to make his way down to the Church, which he said, "was fitting for a lady who kept them all on their toes during her 14yrs as a resident.
A big thank you to poptop and Ryan Anderson!

Ryan is an extremely nice young man who delivered a very professional service from the moment the booking was confirmed. He kept in touch throughout the process which was reassuring and asked what tunes we wanted played and delivered exactly that. He was well turned out in his highland dress and knew what was expected of him and arranged himself accordingly. His piping was excellent. He really enhanced our service for dad.
I would highly recommend Ryan.

Friendly, flexible and reliable! Ryan piped at our wedding and was just brilliant, the family and the guests all enjoyed his playing. It was important for me to be piped down the aisle, and 'Caledonia' sounds great on the pipes! Highly recommend him! Mr & Mrs Mac
How long do you play for?
Any required time
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
This isn't required for the bagpipes, however if needed it could be arranged!
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
How much space do you require?
Enough room to stand comfortably with the bagpipes, a little more room if we're dancing!
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
Of course! Let me know of any particular tunes you'd like played.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
This depends on what you're needing. If i'm at your event for a long time then it might make sense to play sets around 15-20 minutes then come back and do another set when time is suitable. Always very flexible, so whatever works for you!
Playing anything from traditional Scottish tunes to modern songs! At Christmas time it's great to play some Christmas classics to get guests singing!
