Mark was amazing! We booked him last minute for my sister’s wedding in Charlotte and everyone loved him! Guests and perfect strangers stopped to listen to him play. Highly recommend Mark for your next event!
Pleasant with our group. Played requests. Spoke with the children about the bagpipe and was very respectful of my wishes.
Everyone was impressed and moved.
Mark did a great job at our wedding ceremony! Easy to communicate and work with leading up to the event and arrived exactly when we talked about. Has wedding experience and made the suggestion to our coordinator to have him process us out which turned out awesome! Thank you for such a great job at our wedding!

An amazingly professional bagpiper, such a kind person. Thank you so much for everything.
Such a great addition to our tree lighting!
Mark did a phenomenal job playing at the funeral of my mother-in-law. He opened the service with a beautiful song and ended with the requested Amazing Grace. It made a very simple ceremony extra special. His professional appearance and wonderful playing would make any event unique and memorable.
Mark was perfectly dressed and performed beautifully. The family was very pleased.
