FuneralReviewed on August 8, 2023From Niantic, CT

CoreyAnne was spectacular as a bag piper and person. Excellent communicator, on time (early) looked great in her uniform, very professional and an A++ Bagpiper with MANY tunes in her library. Will definatly work with her again and I highly recommend. Shi is a Piper for 17 years, US Navy 8 years and mother of eight and she gets it all done!

FuneralReviewed on June 20, 2022From Dennis, MA

Portland and District Pipers (CoreyAnn was the piper) was absolutely fantastic. She played from a boat, in inclement weather, for a ceremony to scatter my brother's ashes off the Cape Cod shore. She has a wonderful personality and played music exactly as we asked for. Her experience is clearly evident. I wouldn't hesitate to book them again. I would recommend Portland and District Pipers for any event, they will not disappoint!
