I have been at many occasions where Spud has piped. His piping is excellent and he is always very smart in his attire. 100% I would recommend him.

The BEST Piper ever!
Spud The Piper was our fabulous piper at our wedding at Eilean Donan Castle! After that, as I am a film director, I was fortunate enough to cast Spud in a film, for which we flew him to California! He was outstanding and so much fun to work with!!! Spud is an outstanding human being, a brilliant piper, a wonderful & loyal friend, a devoted father... what a gem of a person! We're happy to go on if you'd like :) Min & JR

Nothing was to much
We first made contact with Spud over the phone, he just made everything so simple, I had forgotten a simple thing I needed to get to the boat, everybody else was sorted, but not me, who went out of his way, Spud, picked me up, made sure I got there, Spud is pure brilliance, fun, and a fantastic musician.
