Burns Night...Jim was excellent, his knowledge of pipe music, his friendly and approachable manner was second to none. Jim's planing and organising of the event was brilliant, he kept young and old entertained all through the night with his music. A very good night, definately to be repeated I would highley recommend Jim for any occassion.  - Nicholas Westwater

    We booked Jim to play at our son and our future daughter in laws wedding. Jim had arrived at the church early and had made himself familiar with the surroundings. He looked absolutely fantastic in full highland dress and when he began to play the pipes it made the hairs stand up on your body. We left the choice of music to Jim and he played the right tunes at the right times. He was very friendly and obliging and had many photographs taken with our guests. He recieved many compliments for his wonderful playing and we would like to add our heartfelt thanks to Jim for making a special, proud day just perfect.
