I play what you want

 My goal is to play what you want. Fitting the right tune for the occasion from a somber “Amazing Grace” or “Danny Boy” for a funeral or memorial service, to a upbeat, spirited tempo for a new bride and groom.    My repertoire consists of over 70 songs allowing customization for your occasion.
Here is a list of popular, suggested songs for each occasion.  (You can search google or Youtube to listen to these tunes.)

    • “Highland Catherdral”
    • “Skyeboat” (Theme from Outlander)
Recession (leaving):
    • “Scotland the Brave”
    • “Loch Lomand” (You take the High Road, I’ll take the low road…)
    • “Wearing the Green”


  • “Amazing Grace”
  • “Danny Boy”
  • “Skyeboat”(Outlander Theme)
  • “Honor our Fallen”
  • “Sgt. MacKenzie”(We were Soldiers)
