Bagpiper available for weddings, funerals and special events of all kinds.
Our event was in a hard-to-find location and Shawn arrived early enough to start right on time. He was very professional. His bagpipes sounded beautiful and added a wonderful touch to my parents' anniversary party. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again - thank you Shawn!
Shawn Gority was the surprise component in my granddaughter's wedding. He was just wonderful to work with. Alas, the wedding was delayed forty-five minutes. Since his role was to enter at the end of the service to surprise the newly married couple leading them from the church, I was worried he might cut out in frustration at the delay. Not at all. He entered at the precise moment, playing "Ode to Joy," my granddaughter's request for the recessional, and played until the guests dispersed. The day was hot, yet he appeared in full regalia. He is a grand man.
Shawn arrived and played a number of rousing tunes at my mother's birthday party. She and the guests were surprised and delighted with his performance. I would certainly book Shawn again; and probably will!
Shawn was on time. And amazing costume (mind you it was a Sept. 5 outdoor event and he was wearing 18 pounds of wool). He did an amazing job I would recommend him again and again and again!
Response from Shawn Gority:
Many thanks, Melissa! It was a great event for wonderful people! Thank you for booking me!
We invited Shawn to play for my mom's 90th birthday party and she, and all of us, were so pleased. He was very personable, arrived on time, answered many questions and played beautifully. Well worth every penny!
Shawn played at my father's memorial and did a great job. His music was very moving and people thought it was perfect for the occasion. He was punctual and very professional.
Shawn was awesome at our St. Patrick's Day party at the Quehanna Motor Lodge! Everyone enjoyed him and if he is willing, he will be back every year!!! I would highly recommend him. Great job Shawn!!!
