Stephen participated in my fathers military funeral. His playing of Amazing Grace was flawless. When the color guard arrived they were having issue with their bugle. Stephen jumped in and took charge. He played a tapps and everyone was amazed on how well it sounded. He's a true professional and highly recommend Stephen.

Stephen was so attentive to me before and during my father’s funeral. He was sharply dressed, very kind and an absolute professional. He played everything we asked and had a few suggestions which were helpful on the day of since I was grieving. I would highly recommend Stephen even though his prices were higher than the others he was 100% worth it.

Stephen Wilkinson Highland Bagpiper’s Response:

Thanks so much For the 5 star review Julie. Your are very kind and gracious. Something most clients on Gigmasters don't realize is that bagpipers are not evaluated at all by this site. It's buyer beware so it is often better to go with an experienced player that can deliver rather than be disappointed with someone less capable. Thanks again so much Julie- it was a pleasure for me to play for you.

Mr. Wilkinson was fantastic! He arrived early and set the tone for our wedding ceremony! I recommend Stephen to any bride who is looking to add Celtic culture and a bit of musical flair to their ceremony! Bagpiper Stephen made my special day spectacular! He was professional and felt like part of our wedding party. His grand entrance, right before mine, made me feel like a queen! Thanks Bagpiper Stephen

Stephen Wilkinson Highland Bagpiper’s Response:

This was a beautiful wedding in Maywood at a large Catholic church. Marble has great acoustics. ;) The bride requested Hymns only so it was "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" to lead the bride in and "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee" on the way out for the happy couple. Beforehand it was Scottish and Irish favorites in front of the church. A great day performing for a wonderful group of people.
