Why book Charleston Bagpiping?

I have been playing the Great Highland Bagpipe for 15 years. I have been trained by Sand Jones and Ed Neigh, two of North America's top players and instructors. I am a member of the Charleston Police Pipes & Drums and am currently the Pipe Major/Instructor for their Grade 5 band. I compete regularly at Scottish Games, solo and band events. I am on the referral list of a number of Charleston event planners if you wish a referral.

Peter Armstrong was nothing less than a pleasure to work with for playing bagpipes as a surprise during my toast at my best friends' wedding in Charleston, SC. Not only was he flexible, open to any of my ideas and seemed genuinely excited, his actual bagpiping skills are stellar (and I listened to a lot on YouTube and have seen in Scotland, etc). This was a Scotch/Irish wedding and the response was the same from friends and family. Peter was always quick to respond to me and frankly put up with my high anxiety as I wanted this surprise to be "perfect" and he put up with me like a champ! I would recommend him without reserve for any event and any length of hire. He played two tunes for us and I thought his rate was quite reasonable given his skill/level of performance and ease to work with-not only that-the memory he gave was priceless. Everyone loved it-especially the bride and groom and that's worth it all in itself. Thank you, Peter!

Peter Armstrong did an outstanding job in playing for a funeral service for my wife at Beaufort National Cemetery. We had spoken when the engagement was made and I had asked only for Amazing Grace at the end of the religious ceremony. Later, the priest suggested a song prior to the ceremony. I asked Peter 30 minutes prior if he could do this. He performed both beautifully.

Peter was wonderful, professional and an amazing piper... He played as our guests arrived and added a special touch to our event. It was not a long assignment but he put his all into it and his music was very well performed and much appreciated. Definitely good for an encore one day and I recommend him highly.
