Our family was thrilled with Ryan's explaining & playing different types of tunes. We had a remembrance of relatives who had died in the past year & Ryan played Amazing Grace for us. Ryan was very personable & answered many questions. Despite his last name we welcome him as an honorary member of the McCullough Clan. He is a very charming young man & very good piper.

Ryan, was great. First, Ryan was punctual and professional in his manner and appearance. Also he was very engaging with the ladies at our luncheon. He agreed to answer questions and introduce the songs before he piped them. I had two song requests, and he ensured that my requests were met. We really enjoyed his music and learned a lot about piping. I would recommend Ryan to others who would like a professional piper. In fact, I asked Ryan if he would come back to our event next year. I would also like to say that I had never used GigMasters before, and it met my expectations plus. Thank you. Sincerely, Dee Ansbro
