We contacted Bagpipes FAO to help us with a surprise 50th Birthday celebration for our dear Scottish Librarian at Haddonfield Friends School last Friday morning. Our piper played celebratory tunes outside on the sidewalk as students and their families arrived at school and gathered with a very surprised "Teacher David." We could not have asked for a more joyful and happy celebration, not only for our Librarian, but for our entire school community! Charlie did a fantastic job! He played the pipes skillfully and was professional, responsible, flexible and good natured throughout our entire event. We would strongly recommend Bagpipes FAO!!
