The Yorkshire Piper

DR Q. BISMIL- funeral – Boston, Feb 23

I commissioned Pipe Major Laura Simpson to play at my mother’s funeral. I commissioned her because of her outstanding resume and moreover because of who she is. From the moment I spoke to her it was obvious she was one of those special people you sometimes meet who have a passion for what they do: and REALLY care about their work; and the people they work for and with. Laura is punctual, efficient, and creative. Of course, she is a brilliant piper. I had to give her more than she quoted me because of the effort she put in before, during and after the service; and her level of expertise. She spent two hours on site and travelled for 5 hours. Nothing was too much trouble.

She is a brilliant piper as her resume implies but more than that she’s a brilliant person. She enabled me to to give my mum a fitting send off. Without the piping and specifically Laura’s piping the service would not have been complete. Fully recommended a brilliant musician and a wonderful person.
