“When Ivan was 7 his dad formed a band with some ex forces friends. The Pipe Major wore a sword and Ivan wanted one… he said “If you learn the Bagpipes laddie, you can have a sword”… the rest was history”

“I just wanted to send you another HUGE thank you for Saturday! I knew your surprise arrival would get a big reaction from Mitch but oh my goodness I didn’t expect it to be quite so emotional! Mitch is not a big crier at all and in fact I’ve only seen him cry once before on our wedding day so for you to get that response from him is incredible! The music was beautiful, as was your outfit, and having you walk us out of the church and to the marquee made it all feel even more magical. Thank you once again”

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you from Frank and I for playing at our wedding. Everyone commented on how excellent you were, with most of the Scots conceding you were the best piper they had heard! The way you got involved in the day was fantastic – helping the little kids out with walking down the aisle and interacting with all our guests”
“I would just like to say how amazed we were of the performances you gave at our wedding. The feeling it gave inside the church was just so powerful and we would have loved to of had you playing for the remainder of the day! Thank you”
“Paul and I just wanted to express our gratitude for your fantastic contribution to our wedding in Mayfield. We both felt that you brought something very special and unique to the day. Thank you for going the extra mile for us too, I don’t think Mayfield has ever seen anything like a piper leading 100 people down the high street!”
