"I didn't get to hear him play as much as I would of liked, being the bride, you're left out of a lot of the guests experiences. Though what I did hear, I loved. He made our day very special. Nicholas, piped the wedding party in, and escorted my father and I down the isle. He played the whistle for us during the ceremony and brought tears to my eyes. As well as many many others. I spoke with and researched many other pipers in Houston before booking Nicholas, and I am so glad I settled on him. Very professional, accommodating and talented. I may hire him to just come play for us so I can hear more. Love, love LOVED him!" - Heather B., Houston, PA, November 2013

Wonderful Performance

Bagpipes for funeral service

"Words can't express how much my family appreciated you fulfilling my mother's last wish. I can't tell you how powerful it was pulling up to the church and seeing you greeting the cars and playing. It was so welcoming, it gave me goosebumps. It was such a beautiful welcoming, just as my mother always welcomed people.... Amazing Grace at the cemetery was perfect. It was just what we wanted for her and along with the good weather, her parents' farm in the distance, it was such a calming feeling that came over us at that moment. Again, we truly thank you!" - Meredith H., Greensburg, PA, December 2013

Wedding Ceremony

Bagpipes for funeral service

"I hired Nick to play before the mass and before and after the chapel device at the cemetery. He was excellent and very professional. Dressed in full kilt attire on a chilly November day." - Michael L., Sewickley, PA, November 2013


"Nick was very professional and an excellent piper. I don't think I could have asked for anything more." - Christain M., Saxonburg, PA, October 2013

Excellent Wedding Piper

"Nick was outstanding and very accommodating considering that we provided him only a rough outline of our rather informal wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception; and we had no rehearsal. We asked him to 'wing it' and he did an excellent job. I highly recommend his services and wish Nick the best of luck with his various competitions. I expect great things from this young piper." - Kent H., Houston, PA, October 2013


"Nick played for the funeral of my grandmother. It was exactly what we envisioned. My grandma always wanted a bagpiper at her service and Nick was outstanding. Beautiful song selection. Very moving and added such a nice touch to the service. Everyone thought he was fantastic. A true professional!" - Colleen K., Houston, PA, September 2013

Perfect Special Touch to Our Wedding

"Nick performed at our wedding on September 13, 2013 and I am so glad that I decided to hire him. He was extremely easy to work with, incredibly talented, reasonably priced and of course, very adorable. He performed for the ceremony and during cocktail hour. Our guests are still talking about him playing Metallica and other metal songs on the bagpipe (we had a metalhead themed wedding) and I didn't even have to request that. Thank you so much Nick!" - Amanda B., Houston, PA, September 2013

Funeral in Houston, PA

"Nicholas Hudson was very kind and courteous. I was stressed-out because my mom, sister, and myself were lost in Houston trying to find the cemetery for my dad's burial service. Thank goodness he called me! Since I am from California, driving in a new territory can be quite baffling, yet Nicholas stayed on the phone (approximately 15 minutes) and directed me to the cemetery. The service worked-out perfectly and hearing the beautiful music of the bag pipes calmed my frazzled nerves. The music added a special note to it! He played wonderful and I would highly recommend his services." Joan Baptist, Fremont, CA, July 2013
