Best Piper EVER!!!! The Royal Piper was an absolute pleasure to work with!! From the time I secured him on Bash to the day he played for my husbands Celebration of Life service he was so helpful with recommendations for our play list and accommodated our special requests. He is wonderfully talented and everyone who attended enjoyed his playing so much. I would recommend him in a second to anyone who wants a Stellar musician with lots of experience and loads of talent!!!
