We hired Tony for our mother's funeral. He was absolutely fantastic. Professional from start to finish, taking time to think of the most appropriate songs to play and incorporating Dad's wishes as well. I can't recommend him highly enough.

I can not explain just how amazing this experience was. Our Nan loves bagpipes and she literally dreamt of having a bagpiper for her birthday. Tony was fabulous, very professional and a genuinely nice guy. He got our family’s warped sense on humour and gave some back which was great. If we ever need a bagpiper in the future he will be our go to (we are even thinking of reasons just to book him again). He played some lovely songs and even tried to learn a new song and gave it his best shot our nan had the best birthday thanks so much! So easy to book too and all communication with Tony was great.
