After Moving from Scotland 2010 David Methven lives and works as a full time professional Bagpiper teaching and Playing Bagpipes all over New England.
After listening to some of David's work, our family knew we had to have him play in honor of my father at his funeral. David was extremely personable, professional, and we were lucky to have found him through gig salad. I would highly recommend him to perform at any occasion. I am at a loss for words on how touching his performance was upon entering/exiting the church service. David is an extremely talented individual with a beautiful gift for playing the pipes!
Dave was perfect for what we were looking for. He was very knowledgeable about Burn's Night celebrations and was able to help us with the nights events. The dinner guests also found him very charming and a delight. He was perfect for our event.
The lone piper did a wonderful job for my father and law’s service. He was able to coordinate with the organist and perform a song on the way out we had planned which made it sound perfect! I would highly recommend him he was fantastic.
David was wonderful and very accommodating. He didn't mind at all posing for pictures with all of our residents!
Needed a Pipper for my Father-in-laws funeral...short notice. Didn't know what to expect by using the site....I can say with confidence that we could not have done better. Very good decision for such an important event.
David was not only awesome in the bagpipes he was professional, fun and social! Loved having him there at Rockland Bar & Grill, Rockland MA
Dave was fabulous. He played at our nursing home and the residents loved him. He was very accommodating and took the time to chat and pose for pictures with them.
Will happily work with you again!
I hired The Lone Piper to play at my mother's funeral mass and graveside. We were blown away! What a talented man. He added just the right touch to my mom's send-off to make it special. He phones me a few days prior. Was very kind and understanding. Left me feeling very comfortable with my decision to hire him. The music was beautiful. He looked dapper as well! I am grateful!!! Thank you.
Our Armistice Day event came with frigid temperatures and the ceremony lasted an hour. The Lone Piper lead our parade and played several times throughout the ceremony, all while standing in uniform in 30 degree weather. He knocked it out of the park, absolutely. The event wouldn't have been the same without him and he did an absolutely amazing and professional job.
Completely positive experience - easy to communicate with, punctual, flexible about the informality of our event (lead us through the woods to the cemetery). Beautiful musician and all around great guy.
Wonderful job and a fantastic addition to our St. Patrick's Day celebration.
Punctual, professional and accommodating. Great sounding music, awesome with our audience (k-8 grade), and just an all around nice person.
David was timely, professional and patient in his performance at our relative's funeral. To David - I say thank you. To those considering retaining him - I highly recommend David and feel very lucky we were able to find him on Gig Salad and he was available to play.
David performed at my Dad’s funeral, a class act delivered by a class performer, if you can get him, hire him, there is none the better.
I hired David to play for my friends wedding. His professionalism was five star from start to finish. Everything from the uniform to the upbeat songs he played were just flawless. He brought tears to the groom's eyes and even made a little time to take pictures with the wedding party! I'd recommend The Lone Piper to anyone looking to make an event truly memorable!
David (aka The Lone Piper) was so kind as to play at our July event at which we celebrated our Father's 100th birthday and our parents' 75th wedding anniversary, He played outside the hotel where the event was held while my parents were ushered into the building. He was very talented and personable... even posing for pictures with us. I highly recommend him to anyone!
Our son-in-law hired the Lone Piper to play during the ceremony. I think "wow" sums it up. The music made the ceremony so elegant and he is a true artist. Thank you for being the ultimate professional and making our daughter's day extra special.
Captivated the whole beach at Nauset Light during our wedding. He even had the surfers jamin'! He is professional and personable. David was on time during a busy traffic commute on the Cape during Memoral Day weekend and was in awesome full dress during the hot heat! This guy played a steller bagpipe set and it's burned in my memory. David helped make our day a great one! David was more than amazing!
The Lone Piper (David) did a great job piping at the memorial service for our dad at Race Point Beach in Provincetown. It was a beautiful service. As soon as David started piping, my tears began to fall. It was very cold out, but David piped his heart out and never complained. Our dad is in a good place now, and we will always remember our special service. In addition, David was personable and compassionate. He was even willing to fish my sister out of the ocean after she fell in, but in the end he didn't have to. Now, that's service.
After making numerous calls to the Boston Bagpipe Association and getting no repsonse, I found The Lone Piper on a google search and I'm so glad that I did! David made my wedding memorable! Really nice guy, friendly, welcoming and really easy to chat with! I would HIGHLY recommend David for any event!
I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for a bagpiper for their event.
The Lone Piper was wonderful. I couldn't have asked for more. He was extremely professional, kind and social. His music was sensational. I woud recommed and hire the Lone Piper without any hesitation. Again thank you for makine my daughters wedding special.
David was professional, arrived right on time, played very well and engaged the birthday person in charming conversation. In between songs, he shared stories of his life in Scotland and how and why he's in the area now. I certainly would recommend his playing and would hire him again.
Mr. Cladich was great to work with. He arrived on time, was polite and friendly with staff and my residents and was flexible with his schedule and requirements. He is welcome to perform at this facility again any time.
