"We were all absolutely delighted with the wonderful atmosphere your playing brought to my mother-in-law's birthday party. So many people commented, and we've even had neighbours from further down the road saying how lovely it sounded, so you made a big impression with a lot of people! Your choice of music was spot on, and the spontaneity of the dancing and the singing of Auld Lang Syne was just brilliant. You looked splendid as well, and thank you for being so friendly and approachable - particularly to the children. It was a day that will live in our memories for a very long time."
