Outstanding Piper!

booked Bear The Piper for their event

“We have had Bear The Piper to play the bagpipes at two family funerals. Right from when we first made contact, he has been so helpful during what has been a very difficult time for our family. He is so professional and his beautiful playing of the bagpipes at our funerals brought the Scottish tradition to our homeland. We would definitely recommend Bear The Piper for any events. ”
