“For bagpiping, I can give plenty of value i.e. play in background, outside, stay to pipe couple into dining hall.. fill in quieter times with some fluting, etc. I can wear kilt outfit… I cannot so easily, however, double up on both pipes, wearing kilt outfit, so it is usually best to book me for one or other instrument.”
