"I am very proud of my Scottish and Irish heritage and spoke with several pipers before selecting Tim for my wedding. The decision became easy as I quickly realized there are very few pipers on the East Coast with Tim’s ability. He really got the reception hall up and dancing with his incredible jigs and reels.”

"Tim is a genuine professional who added so much to my mother’s 70th birthday celebration. Family members still talk about it!"
- From a birthday party in Fairfax , VA , May 2006
“Tim’s beautiful music at my father’s funeral was such a comfort to me and my family. We are forever grateful for that. I know dad was in Heaven smiling down on us.”
- From a funeral at Arlington National Cemetery , November 2007
“Being a piper myself, I was thrilled to have someone of Tim’s caliber play at my wedding. He filled the church with such beautiful music that now all my family wants to know why I don’t sound like that! Thanks Tim for being such a powerful and stirring part of our very special day.”
- From a wedding in Rockville , MD , June 2007
"I met Tim Carey many years ago when he came to play his bagpipes at a cemetery that I was working at. Having been in the cemetery industry since the early '80s, I have had heard other pipers before at many services, but when Tim began playing Amazing Grace I soon realized that there was a BIG difference in the quality of this type of musician. During this performance I was working and not mourning so I was able to focus on the music. It was so beautiful and Tim's passion was so evident that it literally brought a tear to my eye and goose bumps to my body. I knew at that time that we needed to connect with him and let other families know that he was available. Since that time, I have had Tim play at dozens of funerals at many of my cemeteries and he participates in all of our holiday services as well. He is truly a Master Piper and I am honored to be able to recommend him to anyone looking to have bagpipes be a part of their burial service."
