"We had the pleasure of having Derek Macrae play his beautiful classical guitar music for our pandemic-era intimate backyard wedding reception. He played a selection of classical and Celtic choices and some more popular tunes as we prearranged and it really made our event special as it added the warmth of live music and an elegant element to our special event. Would highly recommend Derek’s services - he is a personable and classy gentleman who is a pleasure to deal with. It’s obvious he wants to please his clients with his easy to work with style :) Thank you again Derek for your wonderful contribution to our wedding day!"

He made me feel calm and confident that our wedding service would sound good and go smoothly. People loved the music and he was easy to work with. Great price, great sound, great service."

"From the first interaction with Derek to the end of his services, it was easy, comfortable and professional!
He played our wedding song as I walked down the aisle and it was so beautiful and perfect!
He was the first one at our venue ready and prepared and we couldn't have been any happier with his services and talent!
Thank you So much again Derek!!"

"I originally booked Derek after hearing him play at a Bridal Show over the winter. He offered reasonable pricing, plays beautifully, and was happy to learn Tenerife Sea for us. How could we not?!

When our wedding plans changed to a smaller wedding than originally planned, my partner and I decided having Derek would still be a fabulous addition to our ceremony.

We are so thrilled with Derek's performance on our wedding day! He was very early, extremely professional, and kind. When guests began arriving 30 mins before our ceremony, I had originally planned on sneaking inside to hide. However, Derek was beginning to play, and I simply did not want to miss out on the music! I stayed out and greeted guests with my partner, while being serenaded by the acoustic guitar.

His rendition of Tenerife Sea was absolutely beautiful, and he was careful to meet several other songs I requested post-ceremony. The ambiance created by his music was simply perfect. I highly recommend Derek!"

"Derek is an amazing classical Guitarist, we hired him for our wedding and he played at the reception and at the ceremony. He has a huge repertoire of music, brought his own amps and speakers and played beautifully. Our guests loved him and his music."
