Drew was a great choice for our wedding at Crieff Hydro! Quick to respond to our request & couldn't have been more helpful in the lead up to our big day including suggestions on the music choices for each part of the day. On the day, timings were perfect & contributed to making our day very special to us. Couldn't recommend him highly enough. Mr & Mrs McKay

We hired Drew for our wedding at Comrie Croft! Drew was great and very easy to communicate with. I wasn't sure what pipping songs to have for the wedding and he was really helpful! Very talented and even stood out in the rain to pipe the guests in for arrival. True professional - Highly recommend! Thanks Drew!

I absolutely love hearing bagpipes being played at a wedding, especially when they are played well. Drew absolutely blew me away when I heard him playing! He truly has a musical talent and so well presented too. Not only did he sound amazing, he looked amazing. Everything you would want for your wedding. Would highly recommend Drew to any couples for their special day
