Got Ed in to attend a surprise birthday party for my mums 70th, Had my mum at the front of the stage as I was giving a speech and the wife was outside waiting for the cue to come in with Ed playing the pipes, when it was time we opened the door and in he walked tunes blaring out, my mums face was priceless, she welled up and had hand over mouth, it worked she had no idea and loved it, I must say thank you Ed as this made my mums night. On the booking side of things it was really easy, fantastic communication, arrived on time etc, can not fault anything at all. Again, thanks Ed and if at all needed we will definitely be contacting you again…

Hello Ed, our family would like to say a massive thank you for the very professional job you carried out at my dad’s funeral, City Road Feb 16th 2015. To walk into the chapel behind the pipes playing ‘Flower of Scotland’ was very emotional. With the pipes in full flow our family and guests walked behind you and the hearse down to the graveside which must have resembled the Lucknow Relief Column. To all who attended my dad’s funeral your piping will forever live in their memories. Thank you again Ed…

Stuart Fletcher

Hi Ed. Further to my text on the evening of my Dad\’s funeral in Derbyshire, I wanted to write something for your page to the the effect that what you did for us on 20th February took the ceremony to a new level. You were such a pro, the tune you played was just right and the McKenzie tartan had all of us in goosebumps as you can imagine. Everyone said what a great send off it was for my Dad and it was you who started it all! As you can imagine, I was a bit nervous about picking someone off the internet (as you may recall, I originally had friend lined up for the gig) but I can assure assure anyone who has any doubts that you really are the man for the job. Your communications were also perfect, reassuring me that you\’d arrived in good time etc etc.
Thanks again Ed and big up…

Andy Mackenzie

Just an email to say thank you so much for today – you were fantastic and the children thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
You really made today such a special occasion for them and I am sure they will remember it for many years to come.
We will certainly be in touch again when we next require a piper and will definitely recommend you to anyone else requiring the services of a bagpiper. Thanks again…

Ed I wanted to say a proper thank you to you, sorry it has taken me a little while. You were a very important part of my dad’s day and did us proud. My dad would have loved to hear you. You were very powerful and played without fault, your music was beautiful! I know without a doubt I picked the best person to play for my dad. I couldn’t have picked anyone better and the comments we’ve had about you, well I wish you could have heard them all. I really hope I get to hear you play again one day, hopefully it will be for a happier reason. For anyone thinking of hiring Ed for their day, don’t think twice about it! He is the person for you! Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart, will never be forgotten …
