Premier bagpiper Kirk Brunson is available for weddings, funerals, and all other events in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine.
Thank you for your professional service. You were prompt and accomodating.
He was great, an awesome performer, gave everyone a great time.
Kirk was the man! Punctual, stayed in contact and really enjoys what he is doing, it is apparent. Great job, Kirk, see you again next year for St. Patty's.
Kirk was great. On time, played great, guests enjoyed and got pictures with him before he left.
Thx, Kirk for you wonderful playing at my Dad’s service. You were helpful, flexible and made the day even better than we imagined. Highly recommend Kirk for all bagpiping events!
Kirk was great. He worked with us the whole way and had some great suggestions. I would recommend Kirck to anyone looking for a bag piper. I will surely bring him back for any other evens we may have.
Kirk did a great performance everyone there also were very pleased.
Kirk is a fine lad and a most talented piper. He adds so much to any event, in this case a remembrance of my brother. I also had a key board player/singer and Kirk never missed a beat in joining in and when playing solo. No event is ever complete and memorable without such fine music to lift one's spirits. I highly recommend Kirk.
Kirk was so flexible and communicated with us throughout the planning of my mother-in-laws funeral. Even when I didn’t have all the concrete information until late he was understanding. He was dressed impeccably and played so well and exactly as expected. Thank you for making the cemetery portion of my families experience beautiful.
Kirk was very professional and accommodating. He made our awards presentation very memorable and special to the honoree and his family. If Kirk is available, book him! He is fantastic!
Kirk was excellent with communication. His vast repertoire included the songs we requested. He showed up on time and delivered flawless renditions of the requested songs, which made the burial service even more poignant.
Prompt, flexible, impeccably dressed with very moving renditions of traditional Scottish songs.
Kirk was so accommodating and worked with me to make the funeral of my brother in law most memorable. Thank you Kirk.
Kirk was absolutely flawless. He made some great suggestions for background music as people trickled in, and did an incredible job with the music for the event. My dad, who is a piper himself, didn't know you could actually play Greensleeves on the bagpipe. We are all extremely impressed and very happy with Kirk as a musician and as a performer.
Kirk was very flexible about song selection and some changes near the last minute. He looked flawless and did an amazing job for us from start to finish. I highly recommend him as a piper and would hire him again in a second!
Saint Patrick's Day in Boston .... the bagpiper was a tremendous hit!
Kirk was great to deal with, showed up right on time, and was very personable. His playing was great, and made it a very memorable party.
I have nothing but superlatives to describe our experience with Kirk. He was on time, prepared, charming, played beautifully, played even more than I expected, and played for an impromptu dance. I would definitely hire him again and several of my guests obtained a business card of his for future reference.
Kirk's performance could not be improved. He was early to the event, played when asked and even played extra pieces. Everyone in attendance appreciated his playing very much.
Kirk the NHBagpiper was simply outstanding at my event. He showed up right on time and was so accomadating to our music choices. We will definitely hire him again.
Kirk Brunson was the bagpiper for my event, he was right on time, and was great. Kirk played for about half hour, mingled with the guests, posed for pictures, answered questions, and played requested songs. It was the perfect venue for my party.
I didn't tell anyone that I hired a Bagpiper, so this was a big surprise for everyone and and they just loved it.
My best friend is moving from NH to FL. Her husband just loves bagpipers. I thought it was the perfect gift for him, after putting up with us for all these years.
Kirk played at my aunt's memorial service at the cemetery. He was on time, polite, and completely professional. His skill level as a musician was excellent and professional (and we have music teachers and professional musicians in our family who thought he was outstanding). Kirk played beautifully and, moreover, was able to play all the special requests we made. His Scottish attire was authentic and meticulous. He was a joy to work with and we highly recommend him. We will definitely call upon Kirk should we be seeking a bagpiper in the future.
Kirk came to our party celebrating our father, he was on time played wonderfully and whatever we asked was not refused. I highly recommend Kirk.
Kirk Brunson provided bagpipe music at the cemetery before and after the burial rite for my mother-in-law and father-in-law. He played Danny Boy and Amazing Grace beautifully. He was professional and easy to work with and was a very special part of the day for all of us.
Nice and professional
Kirk Brunson played a wonderful amazing grace and im very thankful.
Extremely professional and talented bagpiper. Added so much to the service that it's hard to put it all into words.
Kirk really added a special touch our wedding. He played as guests entered the ceremony site, the processional and recessional.
All communication with Kirk was very prompt and professional. He even let me throw out some requests, and had no problem accommodating them.
A special touch that I wasn't expecting, but absolutely loved, was that he led me and my father down the aisle. It was so unique, and was very happy the he did that.
Kirk will definitely add a special touch to your event that your guests won't soon forget! I can't recommend him enough!
