Tim was highly accommodating and even played the bagpipe outside our historic church for 15 min or so prior to the service. We were celebrating the Kirkin o' the Tartans as well as our 144th anniversary of our church being established. It was very festive with Mr Akins' playing throughout our service.

Mr. Akins travelled to Savannah to play at my mother's graveside memorial service. In every respect, he was absolutely wonderful. He arrived exactly when planned, wearing full highland dress. He conferred with the minister and myself before the service, understood exactly what we wanted, and provided background music before and after the service. In fact he struck up "Amazing Grace" as we closed and everyone spontaneously began to sing. He is a very talented piper. My family has Scottish ancestry and my mother loved the bagpipes; Mr. Akins contributions to the ceremony were beautiful and deeply appreciated by us all. Thank you so much.
