Colin Sutherland - Highland Piper - Bagpiper - North of England Event Location: Newcastle upon Tyne 4th February 2017
We live in Vancouver, British Columbia and we wanted to surprise my father in law in Newcastle, UK for his 70th birthday. Right from the initial enquiry Colin was quick to respond and made the whole process of booking him simple. We were not there for the party, but we understand from relatives that Colin was the talk of the day as he was professional and ensured that there wasn't a dry eye in the house. I would highly recommend Colin and would not hesitate to book him again.
