    Our venue was at the Cairnwood Estates. The Pitcairn family lineage is from Scotland and so we felt the need to commemorate the occasion with a piper and drummer in grand kilt fashion. Charlie and Mark gave a spot on performance and were fabulous. They entered the reception in fine style playing our song requests and surprising our guests. We had a great time. Highly recommended.

    I cannot say enough about Mr. Rutan. He was very professional and his experience shows greatly in how amazing he plays the bagpipes. Bagpipes FAO has always been professional, ontime and courteous for every function we have used them. We will always use Mr. Rutan in all upcoming family functions!

    I can't say enough about how amazing Charlie was on our day! In the months leading up to the event, he worked very closely with me to coordinate the songs and ensure that our ceremony ran smoothly on the day. He was a hit with my guests (both Scottish and non-Scottish) and added that special touch that ensured that this cross-cultural wedding was a success!
