Stephen was absolutely amazing. Arrived early, asked exactly what we wanted and over delivered. Such a nice guy that really was passionate about the event. I was so impressed with this guy. In the future there is no one else but him I would even consider. Stephen, if you read this, thank you, we had so many positive comments about you and you made us so proud and the kids wedding such a memorable event. Thank you

He was outstanding at our memorial event. The family was very pleased.
Stephen was the perfect complement to an extraordinary wedding held at a 250-year-old family Homestead from the American Revolutionary War soldier in beautiful Western PA. Blending Celtic and early American traditions, he performed magically standing at the top of the original silo announcing the arrival of the bride on a team of horses and buggy through a beautiful half a mile long private lane to the ceremony. He played with life, skill and passion! He is the greatest kind of professional artist - his music transcends a single moment into life-memory while quietly playing his bagpipes exquisitely. The 160 wedding guests all felt they were taken back to another place in time. He was a joy to work with - can’t say enough about him. He’s the best!
Amazing piper! Used him when I was married 10 years ago!! Same quality and professionalism! Very friendly!
Stephen Holter made our daughters wedding day truly exceptional! His talent was only surpassed by his professionalism! The music was fantastic, and using Gigsalad was incredibly easy!
We would recommend Stephen to anyone who would like to add bagpipes to their event!

Stephen did a wonderful job with our wedding. He listened to our ideas of what we wanted and fulfilled the request fully. I would recommend his piping services to my family or friends.
