Iain, I did not get the pleasure to meet you in person and now I don't want to miss the opportunity to thank you. You were recommended to me by Jamie at Matarese Funeral Home, in Ashland, MA. for the memorial service of my father on Oct. 24 2015. You showed up on time, played three beautiful songs and then quietly left. I can not tell you how many compliments I got regarding your playing and how beautiful it sounded. I highly recommend Iain to play at your event ! You will not be disappointed. Thank you for making our celebration of life a real celebration! My father was smiling down on you.

Every year the Dover Town Library offers a family event highlighting a different culture broadening our community’s worldview. Iain was the highlight of our Scotland series. Piping on the green in front of the library stopped traffic, helping us advertise our event. After piping the crowd in, he gave a lecture about the bagpipes. He spoke about the history of the pipes, the difference between the Irish and Scottish pipes, how he began and what to do if you were interested in learning how to pipe. Iain was informative, knowledgeable and charming in his presentation appealing to both young and old. His training, discipline and pride were apparent in his performance and his manner. Iain made us proud. So proud that we invited him back to participate in Robbie Burns Night!

Thank you Iain for the terrific job you did at our daughter's graduation party. As she posted on her facebook page when you appeared, "my grad party just got epic!" She has always had a thing for the bagpipes and she got such a kick out of having you play and getting to talk to you afterwards. Plus, my older daughter called me a genius for thinking to bring in a real bag piper. What a treat. I'll get caro to send the photo she posted.Cathy

July 20th, 2013 will be a beautiful day that the Kellogg and Klaes families will always remember. My daughter, Kate, became Mrs. Brendan Klaes. What made this day extra special was her request to have Iain play Highland Cathedral on the bagpipes as her brother escorted her down the aisle. It was an incredible moment for us all.Iain not only accommodated a time change(he was there an hour early and in full regalia in the 90 degree heat), but calmed the nerves of this M.O.B.(Mother of Bride!)with a much appreciated sense of humor. Thanks, Iain! This was the third time Iain's beautiful piping has provided joy and comfort(at my late husband's funeral) for our most grateful family.

Iain played at our son's wedding ceremony this past weekend and did an outstanding job.Although it was close to 96 F outside Iain was professional and dressed in full highland wear.The guest were thrilled and the bride was escorted up the aisle to some wonderful bagpipe music.Then the couple were piped out at the ceremony.Each music choice was perfect and fitting.I would not hesitate to recommend Iain to anyone who wanted some amazing bagpipe music at their event.

My best friends Dad passed awayDr. John O’Neil, his burial was a distance away from where we live. I spoke to several pipers and had Iain Massie perform at his burial. He was phenomenal as we arrived he played quietly and throughout the service. The sound of the bagpipes was so beautiful and calming in the background. We are so thankful to have had Iain he made this day really special. Thank you Iain!

My brother Alan contacted Iain to play for the Mikolich family after our brothers'funeral, DR Dennis Mikolich of Providence RI on Friday 12/2/11 (Our older brother took lessons as a child and played in a Bag Pipe Band here in San Diego, CA) he was 60 years old. His wife wouldn't let us have him be a part of her service so Iain played for our family outside and across the street from the church afterwards. There wasn't a dry eye to be found when he finished....God Bless Him

This winter the Newton Community Chorus wondered how on earth it was going to thank and pay tribute to our outgoing president, who had served an unbelievable six years when the normal term is only one year. Because we knew he loved bagpipes we decided to surprise him and therefore hired Iain Massie, who came recommended as the best bagpiper around. No one who was there will ever forget it. Iain showed up in his full regalia and came down the hall playing his pipes and walking slowly and majestically into the room where we were having our end of term party. Tears and smiles of gratitude and amazement lit up the room.Iain can play any kind of tune you want, from dancing to funereal. He is a superb musician, and there is no music as compelling as the bagpipes. You won't regret adding this wonder to your festive or somber occasion. You will love hiring him.

I do appologize for not being able to meet you that day to express my personal appreciation. I have now returned to my home in Trinidad in the West Indies with those special memories.

P/M Iain Massie,Thank you on behalf of my whole family – Westie included – for the vital role you played in my little sister’s wedding. Your whole performance was truly perfect. The sound and demeanor of pipers for us have always signified the coming of a memorable, long-awaited, and well-earned moment in one’s life. Your commanding performance provided a structure and credence to the atmosphere Jess and Dave worked hard to create: one of mingled tension of joy and solemnity, of hopes for the future and reverence for the past, and of respect for everyone present and for those who could not be.Though the ceremony was an eclectic mix of traditions and inventions, and though the organization of the ceremony at times accommodated the spontaneous spirits of the bride and groom, your unwavering professionalism provided an undercurrent of order from the time you welcomed the first guest until you led the last guest to the reception.Professionalism and ceremony aside, your subtle warm and witty personality helped guide my sister during the long wait before the processional. You accommodated her (very!) last-minute changes to the musical selections and you quietly organized and advised those of us in the processional (giddy and nervous) as to when and how to proceed down the aisle. To me, the most poignant moment of your performance was when, after piping all guests into the reception at the entrance of the Log Cabin, you played one final tune outside, at the back of the cabin, facing the vast expanse of trees, so that your tune was heard as a final, distant acknowledgment of the ceremony. With that last tune the wedding ritual lingered, flickered, and faded as the joyous celebration of a new life began inside.The whole Pottle family deeply thanks you again for your priceless contribution to our observance of newlyweds Jessica Pottle and David Bailey’s eternal union.Thank you.

Dear Mr. Massie, You recently played the pipes at my fathers' funeral March 4. You were fantastic. It was so important to all of his children and his wife that a piper play at his funeral. He was a drummer for many, many years in a pipe band and was even listening to the pipes at the time of his death. It was vital to us that he had not just a piper...but a GREAT piper and you certainly were just that. I can't thank you enough for the beautiful job you did, we will remember this always.

Hello Iain, I don't suppose you'll remember me, but I was one of your student's at Dreghorn Camp, Edinburgh 1981/82. Anyway, I was surfing the net trying find a screen-saver of Dreghorn when I came across your site! The pictures so far of the camp are of The Gordon Highlanders on the parade-square and (from your web-site) when you were a student(was Korky there too?). But I don't suppose if you have any photos of the camp when you were an instructor? The main reason why I would like a photo of that time is because it's where my piping career started from.Finally, to talk about your site. I particulary liked the way you advise people to hear the piper play first before a booking. I know from personal experience if my business-profile isn't convincing, my presentation always works. And that note, I'll finally finish off by saying thanks for your efforts as an instructor towards my tuition.Regards,Ronnie.

In 1999 I visited Scotland for the first time. The first thing I saw was a bagpiper, piping a wedding. After a few weeks of hearing bagpipes there I knew I had to have a piper play at my wedding. After a lot of research I found Iain Massie and I could not have been happier. I was married on September 7th, 2002. Iain piped prior to my wedding and after. I also had him piping as guests arrived at the church. But the best part for me was the recessional. Iain piped my new husband and I down the aisle and out of the church. I could not have been happier. Iain was wonderful. I would recommend him so any occasion that you want a piper at.Thank you Iain for making our day more special.Sherri & Chris Boivin

Dear Mr. Massie, Thank you so much for your inspiring piping at my mother's 100th birthday party. You were the highlight of the afternoon for our family and friends as well as the residents at Longwood Place. Several pictures of you are proudly displayed in my mother's birthday photo album.

I'm sorry to hear about Gio Ferro. I remember a couple of you guys (Tim,Rob) from when you played with Castle Island Pipe Band. I was a rank beginner among you, always playing with my chanter plugged up. By the time I was "almost" good enough to play, the pipe band disbanded. Someday I hope to make it back into the ranks. I'm out terribly out of practice, but slowly finding time to practice.-Dana MacKay

Hey guys, just wanted to say it was my pleasure competing in Worcester '98-'01.The pipers from the pipers society were the backbone of the band, not to mention the great drum corps I was able to be a part of to create a great band even though it was for only 3 seasons.Good luck to you all where ever you end up.Sincerely,Stewart HoggBass Drummer (In Retirement)--- For now!

Just moved to the area;10/01, and am looking for a grade 4-5 band to join and hopefully contribute to. I've been piping for 30 years, occasionally fairly well!My last band was Tidewater pipes and drums, 1989, but would like to get back into it if possible. What bands are there in Boston and southern suburbs?
