Bagpiper Bill is excellent! We hired Bill to play Happy Birthday at my Dad’s 70th birthday dinner. He is indeed talented, but was also professional and flexible in accommodating our requests. Would recommend if you are looking for a great bagpiper for your event!

Bagpiper Bill was a wonderful addition to my husbands graveside service. He was professional, accommodating and friendly. I got a warm feeling from him from the start with our phone conversations. He didn’t rush us and was not concerned if we went over the time limit that had been set up. Bill was good at making suggestions as to what were good songs and ideas to go with. The whole family was pleased with his performance and would highly recommend him.
